Flitcroft: We will learn

22 April 2015

David Flitcroft has spoken of his belief that an important factor in our development is to be able to become more clinical against tough defensive sides.

Last night’s game against Southend United saw the Shakers let slip their numerical advantage in the promotion push, however the team’s chances are definitely not over.


Manager, David Flitcroft, feels the team were the better side throughout the game, but were not clinical enough in front of goal to carve out a result.


Speaking after the match, David Flitcroft said: “I’m obviously disappointed with the score, the first-half performance was up there with anything we’ve done this season, but we haven’t been clinical.


“I don’t think we worked the keeper enough, but I’ll reflect on it and have a look at it, but they’ve given each other everything and the fans came out in force tonight.


“It was a special night and it really was a special occasion and we gave them as much as we could without finishing the job off.


“That is something we will keep looking to improve, because that’s what is needed to really finish games off.


“We’ve got two massive games for the Club left to try and achieve six points, and an 85 point finish.”


Flitcroft has admitted that his players were down after the game, but he has told them that there is still two games to play and their promotion dreams are not over.


He is also now looking forward to the excitement of the last game of the season when the Shakers take on Tranmere Rovers, who are currently battling at the other end of the table.


He explained: “They are all hurting and frustrated in the changing room, and I have told them that this could be the start.


“Whether it is the start of our play-off push or not, it is not over yet, stranger things have happened.


“When everything comes down to the last day of the season, that’s why English football is the best in the world.


“It is brilliant when it builds up to that day and you have got situations going off all around the country at the same kick-off times which to leads for an exciting finish.


“We have got to be in there to be involved in it, so we have to go out and do our work this week and get the boys lifted ready for a big game on Saturday.”
