Dunn Disappointed To Concede Late Goal

3 January 2016

In a brutally honest post match interview, manager David Dunn spoke of his disappointment at dropping two points and the need for movement in the January transfer window.

A goal in the final 10 minutes of the game stole a draw for the U’s and Dunn summed up his thoughts after the game.

He said: "I’m very disappointed. I sound like a broken record each week and I say the same but how can we prepare for what happened there? We are not a good enough side to play with eight or nine players each week, but that’s what we do. 

“I feel sorry for some players in there because they work their backsides off for the club but they get let down and I feel let down again today.

"These are the games we have to win. I’m responsible for the results and they haven’t been good enough.

“This is probably the lowest I’ve felt since I’ve been at the football club and as much as I’m down, I’m the one who is expected to get them up, and I’ll be doing that. 

“It’s no good me standing here and going into the club on Monday feeling down because I’ve got to roll my sleeves up. How can I defend some of the defensive play we have seen in the last couple of month? I can’t.”

One positive from the game was the successful free kick routine which saw Rhys Murphy notch his second in as many games for the club.

“We worked on it on Friday and that is one positive from the game,” Dunn admitted. 

"There were positives but it’s hard to acknowledge them feeling like this. We worked the free kick really well but I’m a little bit angry and feel let down.”

With the January transfer window now open, the manager feels there is a definite need for incomings and outgoings from the football club.

He said: "I want it to be a massive transfer window but whether that happens I don’t know. We’ll have a meeting next week and I’ve got certain players I want to bring in but I’ll leave that to the powers that be. 

“As I said leading up to January, it is a hell of a month for us off the pitch because we need to recruit better."
