Post match reaction from the caretaker manager

13 February 2021

Caretaker manager Jon Brady - although disappointed by the result - felt there were positives to take from Saturday's game with Burton Albion.

“For the first twenty five minutes we were really on the front foot and in the ascendancy,” he said.

“We moved the ball a lot quicker and we had some really good patterns of play. The goal that was ruled out was very tight and Ryan Watson hit the bar.

“The effort and energy was exceptional.

“I didn’t think the back-pass from Cian Bolger was deliberate, it came off the top of his shin and in my mind Jonathan Mitchell made the right decision to pick it up and the decision was very harsh.

“When you are down there things go against you and you need to put the brakes on first and then turn things around.

“I’ve only had two one hour sessions with the players but I felt that we posed more of a threat especially in the first twenty five minutes.

“We are trying to change the mindset and free the players up a little bit more, the body language hasn’t been good from some of them and they can show a bit more positivity towards each other.

“All I’m trying to do is get the team back on track for the football club and everyone wants the club to maintain League 1 status.

“The boys worked really hard and there were signs from the way we played we can move forward. I believe I can help and improve these players to start getting results but it’s not about me, it’s about what’s best for the football club and if the powers that be feel someone else can take it on them I’m all for it.

“I believe I’ve had a positive reaction from the players today and I’d like to take that in to the game at Ipswich on Tuesday.”

"I would also like to thank the groundstaff who did a superb job to get the match on in these conditions. They deserve a lot of credit and we are very grateful to them."
