It killed us

11 August 2013

Jordan Sinnott on his arrival at Gigg Lane and the defeat at the Kassam Stadium

After arriving on loan from Huddersfield Town earlier in the week, Shakers Player spoke to Jordan Sinnott following the 2-1 defeat at the Kassam Stadium where he gave us his first impressions of the new look Shakers and explained what he hopes to achieve from his time at Gigg Lane.

‘We did so well to get back into the game, and in my opinion Oxford looked like they had gone.  I don’t think they wanted it at all; I thought it was time for us to kick on and try to get that second goal and to win the game or at worst get a point at 1-1.  Obviously though that set piece has killed us at the end and then the red card straight after was a kick in the teeth.

There are positives that we can take out of the game so we will take them and go again next weekend.  The red card was silly, I don’t know what happened.  I think he was blocked for their goal and he was trying to get the ref to change his mind, but it’s killed us and made it even harder for us.

The manager is frustrated after the performance because we did deserve better, especially after the second half but we just have to take the positives from it and go into Accrington on Saturday.  When you dominate games like that, especially in the second half you need to come out with at least a point, but we will train hard next week ready for the weekend.

I’ve got a good few months now to settle in, I just want to play football and play my game.  Now I have come in and need to show everyone what I can do.  I will just try my best for the club and kick on.  The gaffer told me to get on and to play in the hole just behind the strikers, to try and influence the game and to try and get a goal

Mark Robins at Huddersfield told me to come here to get some games; he didn’t want me waiting around for games at Huddersfield.  At my age I want to be playing, to go out and play football.  I know that in the past players have come here on loan and they are now playing regular football in the championship and such.  I have to use that and get the experience, and then hopefully the same can happen with me.

I know quite a bit about Accrington because Josh Windass plays for them and I know him very well and it should be interesting.  It will be my first home game, but we will train hard and if I am given the chance, we will go again and I can show everyone what I can do.

To do anything we have to win home games.  You don’t go to places like Oxford and expect to dominate games like we have done on Saturday, but now we need to kick on and get the home fans behind us.

I’m surprised with what I have seen, there are a lot of new lads to the club here and after some of the phases of play that we saw at Oxford, it’s like they have been playing together for weeks and weeks or even longer, but we will just get better in time.’
