'If It's Football, It's Vital'

McMahon Disappointed Following Stevenage Loss

Assistant manager John McMahon has said he was extremely disappointed following the three one loss to Stevenage on Saturday.

Tranmere weren't close in the game and even our consolation came from an own goal from them, and speaking to the Official Site following the match McMahon didn't really pull any punches or sugar coat things as he knows it was a very poor team performance and he knows far too many players just failed to turn up.

'Too many of us didn't turn up. It was a poor team performance and there were poor individual performances. We need to analyse it and look at where we can improve. We knew they'd be direct and strong but we just couldn't cope.'

McMahon goes on to say that in his mind all three goals were disappointing from a defensive outlook and he feels we could've coped with all three in a far better way.

He does give them credit for being good at what they do and they are in a good run of form themselves at the minute, and they stick to their strengths during matches, but we allowed ourselves to be rushed and to panic and simply put we should be better than that and know better than to let teams force us into that mindset.

'Every game is a fight. They've got to fight for their lives, got to fight for their living and fight for their futures, for them, for the club and spectators. We've got to show more resilience that we did. You can't legislate for some of our defending at times.'

The assistant gaffer goes on to say that we simply have to move on from this, learn the lessons we can and demand better of ourselves moving forward as we must get it right when we face Brentford in the next game.

One thing he does assure fans though is that although it may not look like it at points, these players do care and they will be doing their all to get us back on the right path.
