Brown: Our luck just seems to be out

1 March 2014

Phil Brown on the 1-1 draw with Wycombe Wanderers at Roots Hall

Phil Brown admitted Blues’ luck just seems to be out at the moment, after a Daniel Bentley own goal meant Wycombe Wanderers left Roots Hall with a point.

Brown watched on as Blues took the lead through Barry Corr’s header from a Kevan Hurst corner, before his side were pegged back.

Bentley could do nothing about the goal after Paris Cowan-Hall’s effort came back off the crossbar and bounced in off the ‘keeper’s back.

Blues boss was frustrated at the final whistle, and felt only one side wanted to take the three points at Roots Hall.

He said: “I spoke to the fourth official about 30 minutes in because of the time they were taking over everything, and he said you need to score to quicken them up.

“We upped the ante at the start of the second-half and got the goal to take the lead which was absolutely deserved.

“But there wasn’t enough time between our goal and theirs for us to stamp our authority in proceedings.

“The goal was quite remarkable really. Daniel Bentley is despondent in the changing room but there was nothing he could do.

“It does really sum up our luck at this moment in time, but we’ve just got to work hard to get through this spell.”

Brown felt the hard work was on show from Blues, but admits there is something missing at this moment in time.

He believes that is in the final third, and a belief to put away chances that arise.

Brown added: “There was hard work from everyone on the pitch and they gave it everything for the fill 90 minutes to try and get the three points.

“Even after their goal we kept going, but the crazy thing about football is they almost won the game themselves.

“There’s something missing at the moment and the players are down in the dressing room because they deserved the win today.

“It’s just in that final third, we seem to be lacking a bit of belief, and that’s cost us today again. We’ve just got to keep going.”
