Mixed emotions for McClure

8 October 2013

Matt McClure was understandably pleased to get on the scoresheet again on Saturday, but admitted that it wasn’t one of his better games of the season.

The 21-year-old struck late to give the Blues a glimmer of hope in the 2-1 defeat at the hands of Burton Albion – his second goal in as many games.
He said: “Strikers can have a good game and not score and everyone thinks they’ve played bad, but I didn’t do very well and my hold-up play in particular wasn’t great, but I managed to pop up with a goal.

“So on a personal level it was good, but for the team I needed to do a bit better on the whole.”

McClure added: “I thought the first 10 minutes we started well and got in their faces and get the ball in their half.

“After that we pretty much switched off first half and to be fair they scored a decent goal, but it’s one which should have prevented the lad from even getting a strike on goal.

Things were made even tougher for the Chairboys with the dismissal of Charles Dunne shortly after the second half begun.
He added: “After the red card it was always going to be an uphill struggle. Shortly after that we conceded the pen and Doc (Gary) put his hand up and said he shouldn’t have put the tackle in, so these split-second decisions cost us.”
