Paul Lewis feels confident the U’s can put the disappointing defeat at Cheltenham Town behind them, by taking their opportunity to bounce back quickly on the road at Yeovil Town tomorrow afternoon.
Lewis admitted the 2-0 loss at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium was a difficult result to take and was honest in his assessment of United’s performance which he says can be rectified with a positive response at Huish Park Saturday.
He said: “It was frustrating. We had worked hard throughout the week on the five in midfield to try and press them and win the ball back high up the pitch. However when we did win it back we have got to be better on the ball to keep it and give ourselves the best chance of getting a foothold in the game.
“We obviously wanted to go to Cheltenham and pick something up with us two being close in the league table, however we have now got to put that behind us. We have dusted ourselves down and are looking ahead to Saturday where we must do the right things to come away with the right result against another team close to us in the division.”
Having played in his first 90 minutes on Tuesday night, the midfielder was fairly open about his recent form and involvement in the side, stating the importance in continuing to work hard in order to keep himself in the selection thoughts of Head Coach Colin Calderwood.
“Of course it has been frustrating, but that is football. Obviously I got myself in the team earlier in the season, scored a couple of goals just before Notts County and then I didn’t play well enough and that’s football.
“You’ve got to deal with them things and now I’ve now just got to keep working hard to get myself back into the team and to stay in the team.
“It’s the same for every player, you have to keep pushing yourself to be in with a chance of playing on a Saturday and performing for the team.”
