Sturrock: Bad day at the office

29 December 2012

Blues boss rues poor performance as unbeaten run ended

Blues boss Paul Sturrock admitted it was a bad day at the office all round as the unbeaten run came to a halt against Burton Albion.

"It was just a bad day at the office, there's no doubt about that. We just never seemed to get going," he said.

"It was a mental problem. I think the players came here too confident that they would win the game and it didn't happen.

"There's a fine line between over confidence and being confident, unfortunately it was the former today.

"Take nothing away from Burton, they did well and hurried us all over the pitch.

"They are a good side with one of the best home records in the division. We're disappointed but we must bounce back."

Sturrock was understandably disappointed that the run had come to an end, but says Blues will lose more games before the end of the season.

"I want everyone to know we will lose more games before the end of the season, but hopefully it's very few," he added.

"There's no shame in one defeat in fifteen matches but I am disappointed with the level of performance today.

"We have the chance to bounce back in the right way against Gillingham on Tuesday.

'I'm not one for going in all guns blazing after the final whistle, we will talk individually on Monday and put it right the following day."
