Gareth Ainsworth

"We play well and we are conceding and we play badly and we are conceding."

"The key word there is conceding. We have to stop it and I have told the boys we played some good stuff going forward and could have been 3-1 up at half time and no-one could have grumbled.

"We will continue to work hard as it is not acceptable to keep letting in goals the way we are.

"Going forward there were some shining lights. Josh Umerah made his debut and I thought he was outstanding.

"His effort was superb and he will cause problems. Like I say I was very pleased with the first half performance.

"But we have gone from one of the most formidable defence in League Two to one of the leakiest at the moment."
