'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Post Rovers: Kinnear megaphone

The full text from the manager`s post game interview. Needless to say he wasn`t a happy guy:

"We dominated the first half, we created chances and I am bitterly disappointed with the decision but these things go against you. You know as well as I do, the turning point was definitely the penalty, whether it was a penalty or not I am not sure - but I think that it is the third one the same referee (Rob Styles) has given against us this season.

I could never see that result coming. But having said that, after the penalty, I thought we went a little bit ragged, everybody was upset on the pitch and off it and instead of keeping our concentration and getting on with the game, I think we started pushing forward, leaving gaps at the back.

Nothing has changed as far as I am concerned - I said when I took over the club we are fighting a relegation battle and that is exactly what we are doing. It is up to us to get ourselves out of this position that we are in. As I said when I came, the first game I saw was against Blackburn and at that particular time they were nine points ahead of us.

Thankfully we are now two points ahead of them still but nevertheless it is a bitter pill to swallow, I am disappointed for the supporters immensely, my heart goes out to them.

At the moment I know I am playing players half-fit and I know I shouldn't be doing that, but I am and I am chopping and changing, I am trying to do the best I possibly can and get so much time out of those players, but each time I put them on, I know that I am going to lose them for the following week so it really is a very difficult and tiring time for me.

I know we can be a lot better than we have, I know the team's capable of beating teams and I know that we are going to stay up - so I can get that message across to the fans. But obviously they are frustrated - they are fantastic fans, they are crying out for success and at the moment, we are playing survival football and we are doing nothing more than that and obviously they expect more than that so I am aware of that and I am as sick as they are.'
