Scougall: We deserved more from the game

16 April 2016

Attacker netted his first goal for the Club in the second half

Stefan Scougall admitted it was a nice feeling to net his first goal for the Cod Army this afternoon but felt they deserved more from the game against Oldham.

The man on loan from Sheffield United beat Joel Coleman from close range to give Town the breakthrough in a tight contest with the Latics.

Liam Kelly responded for the Greater Manchester side with just over ten minutes to play which meant both sides had to settle for a point.

Scougall said: “I felt we were very much in control for large parts of the game but it was just the last ten minutes that let us down. We sat back and invited pressure.

“We didn’t clear our lines as well as we know we could have, and ultimately it cost us the three points in the end. We deserved more though.

“I felt Oldham were resolute and had a good defensive shape so at times it was difficult to break them down. We had to be patient in our play.

“It was good to get my first goal for the Club but it would have been better had we got the three points. If I could take the goal back and we get three points instead I’d much rather that.

“I thought the referee was actually going to blow the whistle in the lead up to the goal, but Wes did brilliant to get back on his feet and play the ball.

“There was a couple of players on the ground so I had to lift it last second but it was a nice goal. It was just a pity it wasn’t three points for us.

“The table could have looked much better had we picked up the points today, but we’re two points ahead of Blackpool and have a game in hand over them too.

“It’s still very much in our hands but it’s up to us to go to Millwall on Tuesday and give it our all and see what happens. It’s good to have another game so quickly.”
