Hurst: Fine margins in football

28 September 2013

Midfielder says Blues are much more positive following the draw with Bristol Rovers than they were after Bury

Kevan Hurst says Blues came away from the 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers much happier than last weekend after the Bury game.

Blues had to come from behind to earn a point against Bristol Rovers, and Hurst provided the goods with an excellent strike.

The midfielder was pleased to get his second goal of the campaign to help his side earn a draw.

He said: “I was really pleased to get another goal and it’s just a shame we couldn’t go on to win the game.

“We deserved to win the game but we will come away from this one much happier than we did last weekend.

“It’s fine margins in football. Anthony Straker said after that we’re so close yet so far, and I couldn’t agree more.

“But that’s football and we’ve had to come from behind and get a point today, against Bury we were disappointed not to have held on to the win.

“We had a few chances late on but we couldn’t quite find a goal, a couple of times I should probably have crossed not gone for goal.

“We’ve shown good character and courage to come back and get the point.

“Bristol Rovers set up defensively in the first half and it wasn’t really a great game of football, but it opened up in the second half.

“We could have dropped after the goal, a bit like we did against Scunthorpe, but we rallied and got the least we deserved from the game in the end.

“We’ve got two tough away games coming up next so it’s something to build on when we go to Oxford next weekend who are a very good side.

“Coming from behind to get something from the game will give the lads some confidence to take there next weekend.”
