Bromsgrove Sporting skipper Richard Gregory writes for The Standard in his weekly column, providing his thoughts on the disappointing 2-2 draw at home to Barton Rovers.
Saturday saw our title hopes all but end.
We certainly won’t give up until it’s mathematically over, but with no signs of Peterborough slipping up, dropping two points against Barton on Saturday has now made it virtually impossible in my opinion.
The game should have been out of sight, and although I don’t think we were at our best, I still think we had enough openings and chances to win the game.
On the flip side, we were 2-0 up and I’m sure if Peterborough were in the same position as us, they wouldn’t have conceded the sloppy goals that we did – hence why they are seven points ahead of us at this stage of the season.
As soon as the game finished, you could see the disappointment on the lads faces – we knew it wasn’t good enough.
We had a brief chat as a team and I stated to them that we have had a very good season and we have nothing to be down about.
The main thing is that we learn from it, and I have no doubt in my mind that we will.
We want to bounce back from the result, we have four games left and we will want to win every one of them.
It’s looking very likely that we will have a possible final at home if we get through the semi-final which will also be at home – home advantage is so big in these play offs.
With four weeks left of the season, I can’t stress how important it is that we all stick together.
Our attendances are now over a thousand every home game, so it’s important that it stays like that and that we get even more into the Victoria Ground if possible.
Let’s all get together and give it our best shot.
Thanks for the support and let’s keep it coming!
