Reflecting on this afternoon’s 1-0 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers, caretaker manager Darren Sarll said it had been another disappointing day for his side.
Chasing the playoffs, the Chairboys came out of the blocks strongly and looked the more likely to score in the first half as Boro took time to get going.
Darren told us, “We took too long to repel a physical side, we took too long to repel that physicality and that directness. I thought when we did we had little moments, especially in the first half when we got away and we broke away with Dean Parrett. But it’s a disappointing day. I’m not going to stand here and say we played well and we had loads of chances or anything like that because we’ve lost another game.
“It’s ironic that when the goal comes against us we’re at our best point, we’re in the best moment. Like you said, how many moments, how many times did the ball bounce on the edge of the box when we’re there, we’re in the right position at the right time but maybe the ball doesn’t spin for us, the contact, the type of challenge - the goal against us is of that moment. It just screams where we are at the moment and how things are playing for us.”
Darren confirmed that Ronnie Henry came off at half-time with a thigh injury, adding to the club’s never-ending injury list in what’s proved a particularly costly week.
“I think that’s five or six this week in the space of seven days, on top of losing Charlie and others. (QPR loanee) Jake Mulraney came in, lasted three or four days and rolled his ankle. Connor Ogilvie we lost this week, probably for the rest of the season. It’s been a very, very tough seven days but it’s been a tough four weeks.”
