INTERVIEWS| "I hate losing 5-a-side, never mind a match day" - David Pipe looks ahead to a tough match vs Swindon Town

11 April 2018

David Pipe says that the team needs to have a big reaction against Swindon Town on Saturday.

Speaking after the Stevenage game, Pipe said: “What we will do is try and rectify it from Monday morning, leading into the next week. You don’t want it to fester through the week and I know the managerial staff and the players, with the spirit we’ve got, that definitely won’t happen.

“We don’t let it drag through the week. We’ll come in, turn it around, be positive and then come for the 3 points next week.”

“There’s no excuses, it’s one of those. When you lose, especially in that manner, you’ve got to accept it. If you don’t accept it then you are in trouble”.

Pipe has stated that he and the squad won’t give up: “I hate losing 5-a-side, never mind a match day so you’ll definitely get no different out of me, I’ll make sure the boys are the same.

“Whoever gets called upon next week needs to turn around what happened today and turn it into a positive.”

County play Swindon Town at Rodney Parade on Saturday, and the 34-year-old there is still plenty to play for. Because of this, he says he isn’t looking at next season just yet.

“For me, you want to rectify that game. You can look into the past, you can look into the future, you can do what you want, but as a professional, if you look too far ahead, it’s going to affect you both on the pitch and off the pitch.”
