“We all need to stick together”

8 January 2014

Ryan Woods keen to remain positive despite Orient defeat

Ryan Woods admitted his distress with the latest home defeat at the hands of Leyton Orient, but he’s called for everyone to stick together to ride out this difficult spell.

Woods suggested that the side aren’t far away from pulling off results – they just need to start hitting the back of the net.

“We’ve got to take the positives out of it like anything. We’re very disappointed with the result because we wanted to win, but we’re just going to push on together and we just need to take what we can out of it and make sure we start putting our chances in the back of the net.

“The fans are getting frustrated because not many goals are going in and performances at home haven’t been brilliant but they’ve just got to stick behind us and we’ll all push on together.”

It’s that clinical edge in front of goal that Woods highlights as the area where the side aren’t getting the rub of the green at the moment – but he’s confident it will click into place soon.

“We could’ve gone 1-0 up very early in the game which could’ve made things very different. We had another great chance with Eavesy in the second half but it wasn’t to be today. I think we just need that goal and hopefully it will set us alight.

“That’s why I think we’re down there at the minute because we’re just not having the luck of the draw and, at the end of the day, we’re all working hard together and hopefully it shows because we pushed a team who’s up there in the league for most of the game.”

Town’s away form however has been more positive of late, with seven points taken from the last possible nine, and the side travel to MK Dons on Saturday in buoyant mood.

“We’ll go into Saturday with a lot of confidence that we can beat MK Dons.

“We’re a good team, we’re just not having the luck of the draw but hopefully that’ll change. I think Eavsey scored a couple against them for us last season, so hopefully he can repeat that again on Saturday.

“We all need to stick together and we’re all confident that we can easily be a mid-table side at least and we’ve got to keep pushing on now and keep playing our football.”
