Sylvan Ebanks-Blake has spoken of his disappointment at losing two one to Oldham in our last game.

Speaking to the Official Site after the defeat last Saturday, the striker explained that whilst there was some pleasure in hi scoring his fifth in five games, disappointment at the final score was the overriding emotion because he knows with the control we had in the match, it should’ve been all three points.

The 29 year old explained.

‘It’s difficult to put a finger on it, I think Oldham stayed in the game though we were controlling it for large parts. They’ve undone us through our own mistakes; one of the goals we’ve got to get out and stop the shot. We’re disappointed today because it was a great opportunity to continue the good run we’ve been on, but we’ve got to move on. It was difficult to play in those conditions, but it’s that time of year. We’ve all played football for long enough now, the pitches get boggy, the weather conditions change and we’ve got to adapt to that.’

With his goal on the day coming from Dan Jones’ run and low delivery, he was of course pleased with his own goalscoring run of form and the fact he now sits on seven for the campaign, but again admitted he’d more than have given up the goal had it meant the win on the day.

‘I’m delighted to score goals but I’d prefer to score goals and the team win. I’d prefer to have got the three points today than score but it wasn’t to be. It’s hard to put a finger on the home form because we play well, but we seem to just let it slip and we should really put the foot on the opposition and finish them off. We’ll shake it, we’ve got too many good players in the team not to and we’ll get it right.’

Another chance soon enough.
