Goalkeeper Scott Brown has said he has no regrets over his decision following the game against Rochdale, to inform fans that two players had admitted they weren't trying their hardest in training.
Speaking to the Gloucestershire Echo the goalkeeper also clarified his words to clear up any misunderstandings.
'I don't regret making the comments and I have had nothing but positive remarks made to me from the gaffer, the lads and everyone else. But I want to stress it was in training on the day before a match that it happened and there is no evidence of players not trying in matches.'
Brown goes on to say that obviously not trying your hardest in training remains unacceptable though and he feels the comments needed to be said, but he referenced the fact that it has been slightly blown out of proportion and has been taken the wrong way, because he never meant to imply that players weren't trying in games themselves.
'We trained on Friday like we started the game on Saturday and that's what upset me. We are not good enough players to choose when to turn it on and off - it has to be everything, all the time.'
Brown says it's not for him to name the two players he referenced and the right way forward is for the Chairman to investigate matters and deal with them internally, and he also confirmed he would do the same thing again should it ever happen again.
'It puts the manager in an impossible position. He couldn't leave the players out because we'd done all our preparations and his squad is so small, but I know all the other lads were annoyed because you just can't come in and not try.'
Finishing the interview Brown did also confirm that it was an isolated incident, but he hopes now some good can come from it.
