Tomlin confident Blues will respond

Striker believes Blues will return stronger against Brentford

Gavin Tomlin says Blues will come back stronger after suffering a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Exeter City on Saturday.

Tomlin, who hasn’t scored since Dagenham & Redbridge on Boxing Day, also insists he will find his form in front of goal again.

Speaking after Saturday’s 3-0 defeat, Gavin said: “We’ve spoken in the changing room after the game about everything that happened and we’ve just said that we must respond.

“I have no doubt that we will because we’ve got some very good players in this team and we know we can play much better than we did against Exeter.

“The second-half just wasn’t good enough and we struggled to create any clear cut chances.

“On a personal level I’ve been through it already this season where I struggled to find the back of the net.

“But I showed that I can score goals and I’m confident that I will find the back of the net again before long.”

Tomlin feels Blues were left to rue not taking advantage of being on top for most of the first-half and Exeter making it 1-0 just before half-time made it even tougher.

He added: “I think we were unlucky not to have gone ahead in the game because I felt we had a couple of opportunities to go ahead.

“Obviously Barry Corr has had one cleared off the line and sometimes them things go with you – we thought he’d handled the ball.

“Then they got that goal just before half-time and that was tough to take because it changes everything at the break.

“Unfortunately we weren’t able to get ourselves back in the game, but as I say, I’m confident we will respond.”
