Andrew: We just need to get together and regroup

Defender Danny Andrew spoke to the press after Saturday afternoon’s 2-1 loss to Lincoln City in Sky Bet League One at the LNER Stadium.

The full-back scored the opening goal of the game when Town took a first-half lead. In celebration Andrew ran over to the crowd to hug his dad, bringing back memories of his last free-kick goal against Peterborough where his son was watching on from the stands.

Here's what Andrew had to say:

On the goal…

“I was on and off free kicks a lot last season and I thought this season I was going to try and cement my spot in the team and so far I’ve scored two, but it means nothing when you come away with nothing.

“I do practice them a lot, any set piece. Whether it’s a set-piece going into the box, it’s a free chance to score in essence so I have been practicing. It’s just frustrating that I’ve not managed to score on an afternoon where we’ve won.”

On the game…

“I’m disappointed with that result in the end, especially with how we played in the first half. It’s tough coming here and when we get a lead, we’ve got to do a lot better to walk away with a minimum of a point once you take the lead.

“It’s difficult to tell what went wrong. They just had that little bit of edge in the second half and brought on a lad who came on and got on the ball and we just seemed to struggle to deal with it a little bit.

“We’ve not lost our belief in causing threats to teams, but we just leaked a few goals due to sloppiness and that’s what we need to cut out. We just need to get together, regroup, and hope to have a big week next week.”
