Chambers on Stevenage defeat and final game...
JAMES Chambers has admitted that we let ourselves down at Stevenage but is confident that we will show the strength of character to bounce back against Colchester United on Saturday.
“We didn’t perform well enough in the last game,” said the experienced full-back. “The first half in particular we let ourselves down and whilst we were better after the break, we gifted out hosts their goals and it was a bad day at the office.
“Their goals were down to individual errors and I hold my hands up for the first. At 2-1 up we felt that we were going to go on and add to our lead but we let them back in it and couldn’t hit the heights.
“We’re disappointed for the fans who have given us good backing all season and that makes us even more determined to put things right in our final game.
“It’s been a long, hard season but we have tried to play the right way. The manager and staff have been good and stuck to their beliefs. We’ve got some good players here and we are close to achieving our potential.
“The fact that we have been in and around the play-offs for most of the season suggests that progress has been made. We’ve just not quite been able to see it through this time but there is plenty of reason for optimism.”
