Drew Talbot Talks About The Rotherham Defeat

Drew Talbot Talks About The Rotherham Defeat

Drew Talbot talked to the official website after the derby defeat, he said:'There's no explanation, if you can't get up for a game when there's 11,000 fans here then there's something seriously wrong. We were just flat today. They gave us a torrid time in the first-half. We thought we'd weathered the storm quite well, even though they'd had a couple of chances we were still in it. The plan was to come out and try and create a little bit more in the second-half and that never really materialised.'

Drew even got shoved forward when Brindley came on and took his Right-back spot, so Drew went to the right side of midfield. It almost paid dividends when he came close with an header in injury time, just missing the target.

The team have been accused this season by Paul Cook of not hurting enough, players are coming out now showing their feelings. They are not hiding either, yesterday they did an open training session in front of fans, they signed autographs and posed for photos.

Modern day footballers no longer mix with the fans like they used too, Cook is trying to encourage this, he wants them to be closer to the fans. The closer they get to the fans the more they will want to win for them. Cook since he has been here has praised the following the team gets and their vocal support.

Drew continues by saying:'Regardless of who we play now, we are going to have to win. We're going to have to go on a good run to claw our way back but we're capable of that, we believe that in there. We're going to have to knuckle down even harder. It'll be a good game, they are going to come and believe they can win so hopefully we can stamp our authority on the game, get three points and make up for today.'

They definitely owe the fans that travelled to Rotherham, if they had put in a good performance and lost it would have been less painful. With Gillingham next at the Proact, the league leaders it won't be easy. They need to start the game at a fast tempo and don't give Gillingham a chance to get into their stride. I think they need to show fans that they are up for it and are going to try their best to win the match, that's what the fans want passion, commitment, determination and a real desire to win that was sadly lacking against Rotherham.
