Luke Leahy spoke to the press after today’s draw with Doncaster.
Town went three goals to the good before half-time but then lost that lead in the second period and ended up drawing at Montgomery Waters Meadow.
Leahy captained the side following the recent injuries to club captain, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, and vice-captain, Elliott Bennett.
Leahy said he was angry, disappointed, and embarrassed after the game and said the side crumbled in the second half.
On the game:
“[I’m] angry, disappointed, and embarrassed. We came off three-nil up at half-time to the fans clapping and then 45-50 minutes later we’re getting booed off and they have every right to. The second half wasn’t of a standard that is good enough at this football club and we as players have to take a huge responsibility for that.
“The first half was good, we did some nice stuff and the stuff we’d worked on on the training ground was coming off. In the first half, they stood off and let us have the ball deep but then they changed it in the second half and we crumbled basically, we didn’t know what to do. We didn’t have options on the ball, we didn’t make any runs forward like we did in the first half and that’s a bit downer.”
On being the captain:
“I enjoy leading and I enjoy leading the boys out but whoever has the armband on, it doesn’t really matter because once that whistle goes we’re all captains in our own way but it was nice today.”
On Dan Udoh and Ryan Bowman:
“They caused them all sorts of trouble in the first half and runs from Shaun [Whalley] and [Josh] Vela were causing trouble and then it completely changed in the second half, but fair play to the two strikers, they’re there to score goals first and foremost but they do an awful lot off the ball so credit to those two.”
