GT: Players deserved more

24 September 2013

Manager feels his team merited more than two points from nine

Graham Turner believes a return of two points from nine from his side's testing sequence of matches against Crawley, Bristol City and Wolves was harsh on the efforts of his players.
Town were pegged back by equalisers after taking the lead at both Crawley and Bristol City through Aaron Wildig and Jon Taylor respectively.
Then a late penalty after winger Taylor was sent off proved the difference as Wolves claimed a 1-0 win at a sold-out Greenhous Meadow last Saturday.
GT, now preparing for this weekend's trip to Bradford City, said: "Through the week, three games in eight days, the players had worked tremendously hard.
"I can look back at what might have been, what should have been.
"To finish up with just two points out of nine, the players deserved more than that, the amount of work they've put in, the manner in which we've played, and just the total application to three tough games."
The manager added that Taylor, who will be suspended for the match at Bradford, would have been a major fitness doubt in any case at Valley Parade.
He is struggling with an ankle injury after being on the receiving end of a David Davis tackle which earned the Wolves midfielder a booking.
