Manager Steve Lomas has said that he can turn this around, but a lack of creativity in the game against Middlesbrough was ultimately what cost us on the day.

The 2-0 loss brought our unbeaten run on home soil to an end and the gaffer didn’t even try to hide his disappointment following the final whistle, as we lost our second consecutive game following the earlier loss to Blackburn.

Speaking to the official site after the game, the gaffer explained.

‘It was a game played in very difficult conditions and as a result there wasn’t a lot of quality on display from either side. We started the second half well but they went and caught us on the counter attack when we had men forward. To concede again from our own attack is massively frustrating.’

For Lomas then, we certainly had some huff and puff about us, but that was basically it really – it was effort without endeavour – and the creativity we had shown in recent times just wasn’t there and that was the biggest disappointment for Lomas because we just didn’t give ourselves a chance of getting back into it.

‘I’m disappointed and the players are disappointed, but I understand the frustration of the fans because they want to see us win.’

Lomas has talked previously about the need to improve our away form and have it match (not yesterday) our recent home form, and with away trips to Watford and Doncaster coming shortly, Lomas is clear that improvement now needs to take place this week and get us back on track again.
