in­sists a pos­i­tive per­for­mance in front of the BT Sport cam­eras en­sures that the team’s pride isn’t dented.

“It’s not a great feel­ing to be hon­est. We didn’t stop work­ing, we didn’t stop play­ing. We played some great foot­ball. It’s dis­ap­point­ing to lose but we’ve gave a good ac­count of our­selves, in­di­vid­u­ally and as a team.

“We’ve shown what we can do.

“Al­though we’ve lost the game, we’ve dom­i­nated, which has been the story of our sea­son re­ally. If we had won the games that we’ve con­trolled through­out the sea­son then we’d have been in the play-offs, we would’ve been bat­tling for pro­mo­tion. That’s how good we are when we play like that. We could’ve come and lost and not played well, which would’ve been a lot worse.

“But we’ve come and given a good ac­count of our­selves and we can go home and hold our heads high.

“We came into the chang­ing room and ev­ery­one was de­flated, ev­ery­one was dis­ap­pointed. That’s to be ex­pected be­cause we played so well.

“But it is what it is and we’ve got to pick our­selves up. We’ve got to go on as a group and make sure we try and en­joy it re­ally. Al­though we are dis­ap­pointed to lose, we’ve done re­ally well to get here.”

“We’ve shown what we can do”
