Yates Slams Mistakes Again

Mark Yates was a frustrated figure following our 4-2 loss to Torquay United today.

Cheltenham conceded after only two minutes of the game being played and in some ways that just epitomised the kind of day we were going to have, as even though we got ourselves level about ten minutes later, we conceded another two goals either side of half time and when Terry Gornell helped got us back within a one goal margin of being level, we couldn't quite make it happen and then conceded with a minute of normal time left.

Speaking to the Official Site it was difficult for manager Mark Yates to hide his anger as he believed with our last couple of results that the tide was beginning to turn for us, but he couldn't have been more wrong following that performance.

'We started poorly and to conceded after two minutes was disappointing to say the least. We got ourselves back into it but to concede two minutes into injury time was disappointing. To concede once we came back wasn't game over, but effectively it was. We were poor, too many mistakes, too many non performances from players who performed last week.'

Yates said when giving the interview that he couldn't figure out what our problem was this season in terms of our defensive diarrhea, especially when you compare it to the number of clean sheets (that pun's gone a little too far hasn't it) that we kept last season, but he knows there will be a reason and he'll find it, and train it out of the players if it kills him.

The most disappointing thing is having come so close to promotion last season, after eight games, and yes there are plenty of minutes left to play this season, we are seriously in danger of being cut loose at the bottom of the table as even at this early stage the only buffer we really have is over Accrington Stanley, otherwise we are well in the pack and the longer we stay there the more difficult it will be to pull up the table and put some light between those who could well be vying for relegation come the end of the season.

Things have to change for us, even if it's simply a few more draws if we can't get victories, as at least individual points will give us something.
