White: We'll win more than we lose playing like that

20 August 2014

John White believes similar performances to the one against AFC Wimbledon will yield all three points more often than not over the course of the season.

Blues were beaten for the first time in League 2 on Tuesday night, as George Francomb’s free-kick handed the Dons all three points at Roots Hall.

White was understandably disappointed, having seen Blues create enough chances to win the game, but believes the performance meant positives were taken from the defeat.

The skipper said: “It’s frustrating because as the manager put it, we probably create enough chances to win two or three games but unfortunately it wasn’t our night.

“Wimbledon didn’t have too many chances until we had to open up and go for it after they scored, but we had plenty, especially in the first half.

“We took those early chances against Stevenage but we couldn’t quite do it against Wimbledon and once they got that goal, they did whatever they could to frustrate and counter.

“The performance was there though. The lads put in plenty of effort and over the course of the game we created enough chances but we just couldn’t’ take them.

“If we put in more displays like that over the course of the season, we’ll win more games than we lose.

“We’re obviously disappointed to lose the game, but there are positives to take and we’ll pick ourselves back up again quickly.”

With the trip to Carlisle up next, White says it won't be too difficult to lift the players ahead of the long trip.

He added: "We're disappointed to have lost our unbeaten start, but we can't be too down at this stage of the season.

"We'll have a recovery session on Wednesday and we'll immediately start looking ahead to Carlisle.

"It's a long trip so we'll need to make sure we prepare the right way. We've been good away from home in the last year so we'll be looking to carry it on."
