Glyn's post-match reaction after home draw

Our manager's verdict after Bolton match

7 March 2020

Glyn Hodges said that his side didn't do enough to earn victory today after failing to show the attacking fluency that was in evidence at Gillingham last week.

Speaking after the 0-0 draw against Bolton, our manager said: “Back-to-back wins in this position is a massive boost and that was an opportunity. I said to them at half-time that this is one that you have to grind out. We were not playing particularly well, but we needed that flash of inspiration. The offside goal could have been given, but we are not worried about that and we have no complaints. I thought our deliveries from corners were good, but we didn’t look like we were going to score. There’s a lot to work on and we just have to keep chipping away.

“We didn’t do enough to win it, although we defended at times and we created our own problems to a degree. We didn’t hit the levels that we produced at Gillingham last week and if we had done that I’m sure we would have got the three points. A clean sheet, another 0-0, and one defeat in six means we are ticking along and we are ready for the next game.

“The expectation goes up (after the win at Gillingham) and it’s good that we’ve got that because we had shown that we were playing well, but you have to step-up to the plate and live with that expectation. We didn’t do that today, but we have some big games coming up and we have to learn to deal with it.

“Every game is a battle, and we can battle if we need to do that, but we want to play a bit more football. It’s about doing certain things at certain times that get you over the line and we were not as good at that as we were last week.”
