Hinds & Sedgwick On Fleetwood Loss

Hinds & Sedgwick On Fleetwood Loss

Richard Hinds and Chris Sedgwick have both taken slightly different viewpoints on the 2-1 loss to Fleetwood last weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site Hinds talked about his disappointment and frustration that we came away from the game without anything to show for it, and although he feels everybody can see the positives and the improvements that Bury have made over the past few months, he feels we now need to draw a line under what has come before as now only results matter for him.

'We are all disappointed with the result because we had hoped to get more our of the game. If Anton's (Forrester) chance had gone in, instead of hitting the bar, we are 2-0 and cruising. Chance wise, Fleetwood haven't really caused us any problems and we are really disappointed that we have conceded two goals, but there are lots of positives.'

Hinds says that one of the improvements we still need to make in our performances is how clinical we are in front of goal, and we need to be more determined to defend and get the blocks in as a team to give us the best chance of maximum points. It's all about the often quoted 'small margins' at the minute for Bury, and with a little bit more effort he feels we will get the results we deserve more often.

'We are so close and at the moment it's so frustrating, but I'm sure things will come right.'

Pointing to the Oxford, Chesterfield and Fleetwood games as matches that we've more than competed in and these are sides expecting to be challenging for the title come the end of the season, so performances are there, now it's time to get the results, as he points out rightly that it's a results driven business and performances alone don't win you points.

Sedgwick, who remained on the bench for the game, admitted that it would be fair to say we took the lead against the run of play at the time, but having got our noses in front, he was disappointed we couldn't hold out for at least the point and everybody was bitterly disappointed to see Fleetwood score how they did.

But with all that said Fleetwood are a very good side, and he focused more on how we dealt with them when they were on top during the game, and then how the team blossomed into itself as the game went on.

'Nobody would've picked this fixture list, we've had a tough start but there are signs that things are starting to gell. When it does click and things come right we will put a run together. I don't think we are a million miles off but it's hard to put your finger on what will make it click into place.'

Time is the obvious answer that he references, but if they keep working hard on the training pitch, and keep putting in the effort during games we will pick up the results we want as it's difficult to say, that despite the teams we've played that, seven points from the opening seven games isn't too bad a return when you think of what the club went through in the summer.
