Grant left with mixed feelings after Charlton loss

30 September 2017

Bobby Grant was left feeling disappointed after suffering a 3-1 home defeat to Charlton Athletic on Saturday.

Grant scored his first goal of the season against Karl Robinson’s side, but it wasn’t enough as Tarique Fosu’s hat-trick won the points for the Addicks.

Town won 3-0 at Bradford City on Tuesday, with Grant frustrated to have not backed it up with another positive result. 

“We are disappointed,” added Grant.

“We thought we could come and back that performance up in midweek but unfortunately we couldn’t.

“The manager said he saw a lot of tired legs today, but we need to get back to the mentality we had last year.

“Our energy levels should be high. We’ve been well looked after all week in training and worked hard, and we should take the responsibility ourselves.”

Grant levelled midway through the first half, but it was a case of mixed feelings at full-time for the 27-year-old.

“I love scoring, but I hate losing,” added Grant.

“It is great to score but I don’t care about the goal if the team lose. We need to get our heads down and go again on Tuesday. We will pick ourselves up.

“We can’t dwell on that performance as we need to get back to making this place a fortress.”

Fleetwood host Morecambe in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night, and victory will see Town progress to the knockout stages.

“It is good to have a quick turn around, but as a player you just want to play football.

“We will have to come in tomorrow and train hard. We need to put it right against Jim Bentley’s side on Tuesday night.”
