Following the game the midfielder said: “It’s nice to score, I just had to react and get good contact, thankfully it’s gone in but it’s bitter sweet, it would have been a hell of a lot nicer if we’d won.

“It’s disappointing but there’s no second guessing ourselves, we still know we can have a really good season – it’s just the fine margins that we’re being punished for.

“That has to come, the gaffer will get some stick for it but it’s got to come down to us as players, we’ve got to do it on the pitch and cut out those mistakes.”
