REACTION: Morecambe FC

12 September 2015

After yesterday's defeat, Terry Butcher and skipper Mark Byrne give their post-match thoughts...

Paul Mullin's stoppage time penalty meant that a promising performance for County, ended in a cruel defeat.

After the game, manager Terry Butcher told the press that the nature of the loss made it difficult to take, after creating numerous chances early on in the game.

"I can't describe the feeling in the dressing room to be honest."

"It's a huge disappointment because we played so well during the game. We made enough chances to have won two or three games I felt, especially in the first half. To go a goal down before half-time is a travesty and to lose the game two-one is a even bigger travesty."

"We have had a few cruel results and certainly had a few kicks in the stomach and that one really hurt today, because I thought we played some really good football. They changed their system at half-time, to try and stop ours, but we still kept going forward."

Captain Mark Byrne told the media that it was frustrating not to take anything from the game, after a positive performance.

"It's frustrating. Like the majority of weeks, we have played well but didn't end up getting the result. At the end of the day, it is all about results and we keep kicking ourselves in the teeth."

"We know we are a good footballing side, but I would rather take a bad performance and get that win, which we haven't done yet."
