Manager Shaun Derry has hailed the individual performance of goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski in today's one nil loss to Crawley Town.
Crawley peppered a number of chances at our number 1 and he dealt admirably with almost everything they could throw at him, and the gaffer knows that if he hadn't been in that kind of form we would've been on the end of a hammering, especially when we were reduced to ten men following the dismissal of Alan Sheehan.
Speaking to the press following the match, Derry explained.
'Without Bartosz we would have lost that game comprehensively, which is disappointing. We didn't test their keeper enough and the defending for the winning goal was poor. I was disappointed with our marking from the corner.'
As for the dismissal itself Derry said that Sheehan's first booking was very disappointing from both of their perspectives, and it's something that he has to learn from and not do again but overall he can't stand there after this game and talk about the positives, because really from where he was watching the match, he didn't see too many at all.
What matters now though is not dwelling on the result and the performance because we have another big game coming up on New Year's Day and he knows the players need to be right mentally for that one, so it'll be about learning the lessons from this game, so we can continue to show improvement and not letting it take confidence from us.
Our last two games have been disappointing and we are again on a run of back to back defeats, but prior to that things had picked up so the players need to put days like today behind them and clearly we didn't do that following the Port Vale loss so it'll be a big test of character again now, but with January just around the corner, it will give Derry the chance to shake things up where he sees the need to in order for victories against the likes of Gillingham and Colchester to happen far more regularly in the second half of the season, where hopefully, we will put out of the relegation places and at least get ourselves more comfortably midtable so we have something tangible to build on next year.
