Manager Shaun Derry has said that he believes our two nil loss to Preston was a fair outcome given how the game played out.
It was a promising first 45 from County as we were bidding to put the disappointment of the thumping defeat to Walsall behind us, but in the second half Preston really stepped up their performance and put us under an immense amount of pressure that ultimately told for them.
Speaking to the Official Site following the game, the gaffer admitted that whilst we were low on numbers on the day, he still didn't feel that was an excuse because he would've expected more from us going forward on the day, as he doesn't believe we created enough. With that said, sometimes in football the gaffer acknowledges that you have to give credit to the quality of the opposition at points.
'You go to a place that's a fantastic football club first and foremost but you look at their bench and their bench would probably get in most League 1 teams. With the greatest of respect to us, we were very light in numbers with senior professionals. 2-0 was a fair result in the end because we didn't trouble their goal anywhere near enough.'
Derry goes on to say that we didn't show enough 'attacking nouse' in terms of how he wants us to play regularly, but at the same time it was a mixed performance from the lads and he was delighted with some, and less so with others. But again there is the injury element, new players who recently joined probably needing more time to adjust to their new team mates, and also the quality of the opposition.
The great disappointment for him is as he's been saying it only takes a change in fortunes for us to 'be back in the sticky stuff' and that's where we are again, and he knows it hurts him but more importantly he knows it hurts the players, and that's something they have to focus and channel because there are enough games left for us to achieve our safety aims.
And that has to start in our next match again now.
