Manager Alan Knill has admitted that Torquay just aren't getting any luck at the moment following the defeat to Rochdale.
Speaking to the Official Site following the three one loss, the gaffer said he felt we played some really good stuff on Saturday, especially in the first half, but we still found ourselves behind in the game come the half time break.
John Marquis did grab us a consolation but that was all it was, and whilst Knill admits he can take many positives from the performance in the game, the bottom line is we are now bottom of the table and performances don't count at this stage - we need points.
'It's a mixed feeling because we don't know how we came in 2-0 down but we didn't have any luck in the first half. The ball hits Anthony for an own goal and we hit the crossbar. It was all about the next goal, if we got it, there was definitely a game on, but we made a poor decision and they got the third.'
Taking what positives he can from the loss, Knill points to the fact that despite the scoreline the players did keep going right until the final whistle and that's all he can ask for them as a manager and he does still feel that we will be okay this season, but that particular thought will be helped immensley by us starting to win games again.
Until that happens he knows the players just have to keep on doing what they are doing and try and find us that stroke of luck we need, as well as cutting our the poor decision making we are prone to during games, but again, as long as everyone remains positive and maintains their belief, he is confident we can turn this around in the coming weeks.
The key thing again though is we have to cut out the defensive mistakes because we are being punished for them time after time.
In more defensive news, the club have also confirmed that we have extended the loan of Blackurn defender Anthony O'Connor and he will remain with us until the end of December.
