Second Best To Southend Is Probably A Compliment

Second Best To Southend Is Probably A Compliment

Caretaker gaffer Neil Harris has pulled no punches following our embarrassing four one loss to Southend today.

Bemoaning the fact that the players were second best throughout the whole encounter, Harris told the official site.

'Today wasn't good enough. The goals we conceded were a shambles. You can't carry on conceding the amount of goals we have been this season, and in the manner that we've been doing. We were second best in the first 30 minutes before the lights went out, after the sending off we had to go for it but we should still have defended better.'

Harris adds that ultimately the caretaker duo felt they had no option but to go two upfront and just go for it in an effort to get something from the game even if it was only a replay and he knew to get even that we'd have to get a lucky break and we didn't.

The biggest frustration for him was he knows it was an opportunity for the players to really compete today and they failed miserably and didn't take that opportunity, and at the end of it we've come out of the FA Cup at the first hurdle, and we'll go down in history this season as one of the shocks of the third round because they are afterall in League Two - although their form isn't too shabby.

He also added that Jermaine Easter had let himself and his team mates down with his sending off for a stamp, because being down to ten men just made it that much harder for us to get back into it.
