Moore backs his team to respond

2 December 2019

Darren Moore has backed his side to respond when they take on Leicester City's U21 side on Wednesday.

Moore was left frustrated as his side exited the Emirates FA Cup at Gillingham on Sunday, but is pleased to have a game so quickly.

“I’m honest enough and the players are honest enough to accept that we didn’t get it right on Sunday and now we look for a response,” he said.

“We’ll go and analyse the game and we’ll look at ourselves - we’ve got a cup match on Wednesday so we don’t have long to dwell on this."

Moore apologised to the 205 travelling supporters, but promised better from his side in upcoming games.

“It’s not about throwing toys out of the pram because it was the first below par performance of the season, but what we’ve identified is that a performance like that cannot happen again," he added.

“We didn’t really carry ourselves in the manner that we usually do. We pride ourselves on performance and,  for the first time this season, we didn’t get that right. We’ll make no bones about it. We thank the travelling fans for making the journey down here, we send out apologies to them because that performance was below par.”
