Defender Tendayi Darikwa has talked about his disappointment at our Johnstone’s Paint Trophy exit, and he admitted it did take the shine off him leading the lads out for the first time as skipper.

Manager Paul Cook put out a very youthful side for the game and as he’s already talked about he believes there were plenty of positives that give hope for the future, but for Darikwa his overriding feeling was disappointment because he wanted the Cup run.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, he explained.

‘It’s always disappointing to lose, but we had a very young squad out. I don’t think Scunthorpe dominated the game although they had a lot of chances, but they took their chances and we did not.’

With Cook naming the full back as skipper for the first time, he was however chuffed to bits to get that honour he just wishes he could’ve taken the victory to celebrate it.

‘It was a proud moment for me and my family, I have been at the club for a long time now and I hope this is the first of many times I captain the club.’

Darikwa goes on to say that at the minute he feels he’s playing well and importantly he feels as though he’s developing well and learning from the more experienced players at the club still which can only be good for him and the club itself.
