Defender Charlie Mulgrew spoke to press after Saturday’s 1-0 loss to Portsmouth in Sky Bet League One at Highbury Stadium.
Mulgrew - who is currently on a season-long-loan from Blackburn Rovers, has cemented his place in the Cod Army back four with 16 appearances - returned to the side after not being in the squad against Hull City in the EFL Trophy.
Here’s what he had to say:
On the game…
“We played some nice football today, it was disappointing not to win the game, ultimately, we played the better football but it’s a shame we didn’t come away with three points- sometimes that’s worse than playing bad and losing because you know where that’s come from.
“We didn’t take our chances and conceded a sloppy goal so in the end, it was disappointing- we need to take our chances; we were more expansive today and we left too many gaps on the pitch, but we need to pick ourselves up and go again.”
On playing under new management...
“It’s totally different to what we’re used to but us as players we’re all enjoying it, it was a surprise to all of us and we’re grateful for what he did, but the new manager has come in and we’re all behind him we haven’t got the result we wanted today for him.
“There is still a lot of positives to take, we want to start doing everything we can to pick up points for him. We’re not making any excuses, it’s the lay of the land and the way things are at the moment, all us players need to stick together- there’s a lot of young lads coming in and we need to make sure they’re on the right path.”
