We did everything but score - Robbo

Speaking to the media after the game, Robbo said;" Thats difficult to take to be honest with you, it was a really good performance but we did everything right bar put the ball in the net. We had 10 resonably clear cut chances and didn't take any.

"Their first shot goes into the net and the second one goes in and we're 2-0 losers so its difficult to take, I was pleased with the performance but dissapointed with the result.

"Theres something there to build on, we had a couple of days last week which were abysmal and we've come back with a decent performance, a couple of fresh legs in and the players have performed thier duties as we've asked them to, but its just that goal. Most of the season we've had goals aplenty.

"We've had players missing today but the people that have come in have done a good job.

"We've had enough chances to win 4 games this afternoon and unfortunately we've not scored.

"I was pleased with the performance because we looked positive rather than looking to defend, we looked to get men forward. I thought Jamie Green did well on the left hand side, as did Dale Tonge on the right. We got deliveries into the penalty area.

"I thought some of the passing was good, but ultimately it was chances that went begging that cost us the game.

"We've a goalkeeper thats out so I brought Dave Stockdale in, Andy Nicholas looked tired and needed taking out so I brought Jamie Green in. I had to pick a balanced team with the players Ive got available.

"We've got a natural break next week having lost in the FA Cup and hopefully we'll be able to recharge the batteries that way, but I think the players have shown a lot of energy today, put a show on for the supporters and can count themselves unlucky not to have something to show for it.

"I thought Stockdale did pretty well, he's not had much to do and he's done everything thats been asked of him. He's a good goalkeeper, yesterday was the first time he's been with us and he'll get better and better as the games go along in the month he's with us.

"We've got to get back to picking points up there's no doubt about that, We know we can win football matches and its a case of dusting ourselves down and going to Exeter and trying our best again.

"Pablo Mills is a possibility, I don't know how serious his injury is, I can only go on what Pablo's telling the physio and what the physio is telling me, but we'll wait and see. If he's fit and available then he'll let us know."
