Assistant Manager Jimmy Bell reflects on Saturday’s defeat at Southend United, and ahead to this weekend’s League Two encounter against York City at Spotland.
“It is disappointing that we came away with nothing, but there were a lot of positives and a lot of good performances,” said Bell.
“We’ve got to move on now because we’ve got a good chance to go fifth in the league on Saturday if we win. We’ve got to show the same positives as we did in the home game against Bristol Rovers two weeks ago, and we’ll be ramming the importance of a victory down the throats of the players. If we perform the way we did against Bristol, make it a high tempo game, get the crowd up and behind us, it really will help us, so we’ve got approach the game right and we’ve got to be positive.”
He continued: “Fifth position in the league is everything at the moment because the league is really tightening up. The most consistent teams won’t be any better than anyone else on the day but they will be in the top three, four, five and six in the table."
