Manager Ian Holloway has said that he can’t argue with the defeat to Burnley today despite taking the early lead through Martyn Woolford, because ultimately Burnley deserved it and we were ‘beaten fair and square.’

Speaking to the official site following the three one loss, he felt he had no option but to admit they were fair winners on the day, but there are positives he can take from the game again, and there are also things he definitely wasn’t happy with and will be seeking rapid improvement on.

‘It was an uphill battle after their second goal. We had decent shape and structure but they are a good, confident side. We got a goal but I’m annoyed they got one back, and so quickly. It was too easy for them, and up to that point we had done quite well. I was happy with some bits, and unhappy with some bits. I the end I thought they beat us fair and square.’

Maybe few were expecting anything from today, but a closer scoreline would’ve at least been some comfort given the form that Burnley are in, but it’s a case of putting this one behind us again now and looking forward to the match on Tuesday against Yeovil where hopefully we’ll take the win and get some revenge from the showing on the opening day of the season.

For Holloway, he’s relatively happy to put the game with Burnley on the shelf, because in his mind the games against Yeovil, Bolton and Barnsley before the end of the month are absolutely huge games for us because it’s against teams in and around us, so victories there will count for a lot more than even a point from Burnley.
