Hargreaves Moves On From York

Hargreaves Moves On From York

Manager Chris Hargreaves has admitted that the York City game in effect summed up our season, as one lucky break cost us at least a point.

Speaking to the Official Site following the one nil loss that still saw us behind after only 11 minutes, Hargreaves was frustrated because he knows we had the chances in the game to have at least taken a point by full time.

'If you don't score goals, you draw 0-0 but it seems like every mistake we make is punished.'

Having competed well, a deflected goal off the boot of Aaron Downes consigned us to defeat and it's harsh to describe that as a 'mistake' in its truest form but it's certainly how our luck has gone this term so far.

'It's not a problem in one area, just something that has been dotted around. I can only set them up and say be disciplined and tight. From a throw in, we weren't tight enough and their lad had a shot that was probably going into the keepers hands.'

Hargreaves goes on to admit that he doesn't apportion blame to Downes for the goal, because it's a human reaction in football to bring your foot out and try and get the block in, and normally you get that block and take the praise, but when you have luck like we seem to the block doesn't come off and it goes in.

Hargreaves still has hope though, and if nothing else he has the determination and desire to see us through to the results we want, as he ends his aftermatch interview by saying.

'I know one thing, my resolve has strengthened even more in the last few days because I don't want to be feeling like this again. The fight keeps us up or the fight takes us back up.'

The last line could be quite telling sadly, but there does have to be a realisation that back to back losses again have really left us with a mountain to climb and earlier results against Bury and Rochdale count for very little now as we remain eight points of the safety places.

There is hope though whilst the maths are in our favour, but Southend will be a massive task as their form has just taken a rise and we need those three points.
