Plenty of positives despite defeat

24 August 2013

Defender believes Blues can take a lot from the defeat to Chesterfield on Saturday

Luke Prosser believes Blues will win a lot more games than they lose if they play the same way as they did against Chesterfield on Saturday.

Despite defeat, Blues were two minutes away from taking home a point, and they played some excellent football in an impressive display against one of the favourites for the League 2 title.

Luke, who admits it was his small error that cost Blues late on, believes more performances like the one against Chesterfield will give Blues a great chance of having an excellent campaign.

He said: “If we play like we did (against Chesterfield) for the rest of the season then we’ll win a lot more games than we lose and will more than likely have a successful season.

“I thought we were better than Chesterfield and were really unlucky to lose, That says a lot about how far we’ve come considering many think they will win the league.

“Our response to going behind was fantastic. It was the first goal we’ve conceded in the league but our heads didn’t drop and Freddy got another goal to draw us level.

“We then had chances to win it and I had one just a couple of minutes before they went down the other end and scored. It was my man for their goal but I just mis-judged the flight of the ball.

“We’ve got a lot of belief as a team though and I’m sure we’ll respond in the right way next weekend. You can see from the first four games of the season that we’re on the right path – we were really unlucky not to extend our unbeaten run.”

Luke has been at the heart of Blues’ defence for the first five games of the season, and he’s delighted to have played a key part in Blues’ strong start to the campaign

He added: “I played under the manager for quite a few games last season when he came in and thought I did quite well.

“Obviously Ryan Cresswell left this summer but me and Phillo came in and started the season well and then Adam Thompson has come in and done really well too.

“He’s only young but he’s been fantastic in the last two games. There’s good competition for places and everyone is playing with confidence at the moment.

“You can see that across the pitch. Everyone is working really hard, enjoying their football, and getting the rewards. We just need to keep doing what we’re doing and we’ll do well.”
