POST-MATCH: Shaun Derry
Manager Shaun Derry admitted his disappointment at Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Stevenage, but is determined for his side to turn the result into a pivotal moment in the 2015/16 campaign.
United were unable to respond to a goal from the hosts in each half at the Lamex Stadium and saw their four game unbeaten run come to an end in Hertfordshire.
Speaking to the post-match press, the U’s boss could not hide his frustration, but felt that while there is still a large portion of the season left to play United should remain focused on their end goal.
He said: “It was a poor display and we were disappointed with the manner of the performance. When we perform to the very best of our abilities, we always have a great chance to get the three points or at least one, but unfortunately we didn’t do that on Saturday afternoon.
“The goals we conceded were through our own wrongdoing, which is frustrating and we’ll be looking to rectify that as soon as possible.
He continued: “However, there are still 15 games to play and plenty of points to pick up along the way. It’s a long, hard slog is League Two and nobody has been promoted or relegated in February, so we need to make this game a pivotal moment for us moving forward.
“We won’t be down beat for long, the boys will be back in on Monday morning to train well. Whilst there are still points to play for, we have to make sure we are prepared to play at the absolute best of our capabilities.”
The U’s will be looking bounce back quickly when they return to the Abbey Stadium this Saturday to face York City (K.O. 3:00pm). Tickets are available online, in-store and over the phone
