Town midfielder Jamie McGuire spoke honestly after his side’s disappointing home defeat to Accrington Stanley on Tuesday.

“It’s just one of those things; we weren’t good enough on the night,” he said. “We had two early chances at the start but didn’t put them away, gave a stupid penalty away and didn’t defend properly for the second goal. “We plugged and we kept on going but it was difficult to get through, Accrington kept their shape well. “There hasn’t been many nights like this since I’ve been here and there shouldn’t be, especially at home and with the players we’ve got. We take responsibility; we should be a lot better and should have taken our chances. Those chances came and went.” McGuire claimed his first Football League goal during the second half but admitted it meant little, as he hopes for a response on Saturday against Dagenham & Redbridge. “It’s a small consolation but it doesn’t really bother me – a win is what matters to me. “Tonight [Tuesday] has gone now, there’s nothing we can do about it. Saturday’s another day, and we’ve got to come into training, work on things and look ahead.”
