Match Reaction To Weekends Draw

4 years ago By The Saxons Webmaster

Following The Saxons disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Colne, striker John Marsden and Assistant Manager Joey Dunn spoke to the clubs Media Team;

John Marsden;


“Going one down just before half-time was a real kick in the teeth, but in the second half we battled and worked hard to get ourselves back on top. I don't think we passed the ball as well as we could do, and the final ball in the last third cost us. A suspect decision late on for the penalty was costly, but overall I don't think we were good enough on the day. The boys are a solid unit and we will bounce back am sure”

Joey Dunn;

“I thought the game was a little disappointing in terms of the levels of performance we need to get to. We were slack in our passing, selfish in our possession and didn't play well enough as a team. Positively we battled back second half and got ourselves in a winning position but were not professional or disciplined enough to see it through. There were positives again from a team building perspective. Kyle Hamid has come in and brought us on again as a team, and in the good spells in the games we played some really good stuff, but overall we know we were not good enough for where we want to be and we have to improve. The good thing about football is we will have an opportunity Tuesday to get back to winning ways and get this game out of our system, and if we had said six weeks ago we would be disappointed in dropping two points and not gone top of the league we would have taken that, so we will be realistic about the game in the greater scheme of things, look to learn from our errors and push on and improve”

Stockport Sports now move on to face Wigan Robin Park on Tuesday evening. The game takes place at the Robin Park Arena and kicks off at 7.45pm. The Saxons are now serious contenders at the top end of the table, every game is a big game now and supporters can play their part too.
