Sheridan: “It Was A Poor Result.”

1 May 2016

Manager John Sheridan was disappointed with the manner of the goals his side conceded against Millwall yesterday.

Central defender Byron Webster grabbed two, whilst Shane Ferguson notched the other to win the game for the Lions.

Speaking after the game, Sheridan said: "It was a poor result. I don’t like losing any game but we didn’t get going. We gave them an early goal and it gave them a lift. 

"The goals were basic goals. I think we’ve come into the game wanting to try and win the game, not thinking we are on holiday, but I think one or two of them have packed their bags early and think they’re in Tenerife. 

"It’s a disappointing result but to be fair we had good opportunities in the game. We had some great chances but we didn’t take them. 

"I don’t think 3-0 was a fair reflection of the game because the goals were just basic goals. Our fans have travelled a long way to come and watch us but we should have scored one or two goals ourselves.”

Not wanting to dwell on the defeat too much, Sheridan quickly turned his attention to next week’s end of season clash with Coventry City.

“I’d like to win the game next week, finish on a high in front of our fans,” he commented. 

“I don’t like getting beat, even though we are not playing for anything, just pride, but I wanted to win the last two games and try and climb the table.”
