Micky: It's a real sucker punch for us

27 March 2022

A disappointed Micky Mellon reflected on the defeat to Colchester, describing a late winner from the hosts as a sucker punch to the Rovers squad.

A Junior Tchamadeu winner in stoppage time condemned the SWA to defeat, ending a three-game unbeaten run. Speaking to local media after the game Micky gave his assessment and cited wasted opportunities as a key factor for the result.

"If you have that much control and that much territory, you have to create more clear cut opportunities and we didn't when they came along.

"The Keepers made a good save which may have changed the whole thing, but it's a real sucker punch for us, we have to be fair to ourselves. It's disappointing that we didn't get anything out of the game."

"I think to be fair at the far side it's a free-kick. It's a free-kick that allows them to put us under pressure when they weren't putting us under any.

"But the story of the game is with that much territory, that much control we should have taken the three points comfortably.
