Nicholson reacts to 5-5 thriller against the Green

Player-manager Kevin Nicholson gave this reaction to today's 5-5 draw agaisnt Forest Green Rovers:

I'm going to start with the fact that we took over 400 fans there today, that's incredible going for a club that has been through what we have lately and hugely appreciated by myself and our lads. You're a credit to our club and a huge motivation to get things back where they should be.

Now the game.......

Before the game, at 1-0 down, at 1-1, 3-2 and 5-5 a draw was a good result, at 5-3 I had high hopes and we controlled the game well for 10 minutes but then went away from what was serving us so well.

We dropped too deep, allowed them too much time and too many balls into our box I still thought we would win it.

I thought we scored some really good goals, looked in control against one of the leagues biggest spenders for the best part of 2 games. What makes me happiest is I thought every man out there put in an absolute shift, total commitment and the lads deserved the 4 points from 2 games that not many would've given us a hope of.

We look strong and have snuck onto a good run of points and so I expect the lads to work very hard this week on attacking but keeping the back door closed. I expect any disappointment they may feel to be put to good use next Saturday!

It's never dull being part of tufc!!

Thanks again for the amazing support and hope to see a lot of you back again for Saturday.

Have a good week getting back to normal after the festive period.
