Skipper Dean Leacock has taken the step of apologising to the fans following our three nil defeat against Coventry City.
543 supporters travelled all the way to Northampton Town's Sixfields Stadium and although we matched them in the first half, three goals dropped us to the defeat in the second 45 minutes after we were reduced to ten men.
Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Leacock refused to look for excuses for the defeat.
'It's very disappointing and there's a lot of down players after the game. We didn't help ourselves going down to 10 men, the fans turned out in their numbers and sorry to them but the lads tried.'
Leacock goes on to say that when confidence is low it can affect players badly, and we just didn't start the second half as tightly as we needed to and within 15 minutes of the restart we are two nil down, and then they add the third in under 20 minutes into the half.
The skipper adds that the players will move on from this, and do all they can to pick up results and confidence and they will keep working on things in training to improve, but he appeals for the fans to stick with them during this period because they are doing all they can.
Confidence would've taken a big boost from the win against Oldham, but with Haynes going off reading between the lines, too many players thought 'here we go again' and expecting the worst in the second half they basically allowed it to happen.
The league is still close though, a run of a couple of wins would soon have us out of the bottom three, but it's one thing saying it, only the players can make it happen.
