Gaz: We were off it

18 November 2013

Gareth Ainsworth described his side’s display as 'lacklustre' as they went down 2-1 to Cheltenham Town at Adams Park on Saturday.

“We've got to make sure the nothing games go in our favour - that's the way you get points.

He said: "They were there for the taking today. I didn't think Cheltenham were too impressive at all, but we were very poor and gave them the points, and that's something I don't like doing.

Substitute Matt McClure cancelled out Jamie Cureton’s opener, only for Sam Deering’s cross to deflect off Billy Knott and secure the points 30 seconds later. .

"It took them to score for us to kick on. We reacted and got back in the game, then it was a real blow when they got the deflection. We did create a few chances after that and maybe could have nicked one, but there's no way we deserved to win

"If we'd have drawn the game we'd have been lucky, even though they had a wicked deflection for their winning goal and we had one that just went over the bar. But you make your own luck and create your own positivity about the place - we were just a little bit off it.”
He added: "We've played well in some home games and not got the points. You have games where you play well. For a small amount of games you play poorly. In certain games there's that mix in the middle where anyone could win it.
"Home form's not great. It's something we have to address and I have been saying it all season. We don't seem to be able to get out of this at the moment, but we've played some of our best football at home - the
Bristol City
game and earlier in the season. "It's a hangover from Tuesday (v
) with us I think. It was a lacklustre performance and not one we've had to look at at Wycombe. It's very few and far between I get performances like that. "I thought we did all we could on Thursday and Friday to try and address the spirit and get things back. We felt unjustly done by at
Swindonand we've probably carried that with us."
