Loan striker keen to bounce back against The Bantams...

RECENT loan arrival, Jordy Hiwula, couldn’t add to his goalscoring tally of two goals in two games as we slipped to a 1-0 home reverse at the hands of Port Vale on Saturday.

“It was frustrating,” he admitted. “It was a bit of a kick in the teeth, but we need to pick ourselves up and be ready to go again in our next game.

“It does play on your mind when you lose a game; you tend to start thinking of how you could have done better and what you could have done differently.

“The game’s gone now. We’ve done our de-brief and it’s a case of looking ahead to Saturday’s trip to Bradford City and ensuring that we can get back into winning ways.”

Hiwula was involved in a key incident in the game when he was brought down as he closed in on goal but nothing was given.

"I felt a tug on my shoulder and couldn't stay on my feet," he added. "I would not go down in that situation because I was through one-on-one with the 'keeper and likely to score.

"The defender was the last man, so it should have been a red card too, so it was disappointing that it was not given. Had we scored then I feel that we would have gone on to win the game."
