Gareth Ainsworth

"We've defended poorly. It was a bad start; they came out the blocks quickly but we got ourselves into it."

"We were the only team likely to score in the second half but we let ourselves down with their penalty."

"First goal we should've reacted quicker. Second we got caught playing out from the back. Thommo's equaliser was a great hit."

"We're targeting four wins at least. It'll be tough, but it's a challenge we look forward to. Other results have gone for us today."

"I'm always positive, everyone knows that, but I'm disappointed with the way we started the game. That gave us a mountain to climb, it wasn't the end of the game that cost us, it was the start of the game definitely. It shows brilliant character at any level to come back from two-nil down to be winning 3-2, albeit for a couple of minutes, and I was pleased with the character the boys showed.

"I thought we had enough firepower at the end there to win the game, but unfortunately we didn't see it out, but we'll work on it, and we'll go again on Friday against Mansfield."
