Not beating ourselves up: Coley

25 October 2018

John Coleman is focusing on league leaders Portsmouth - as he has said he has got over the Luton loss.

The Reds lost 4-1 at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday but Coleman was not downbeat about the defeat and knows the confidence is still there in his fourth-placed team.

"I do not like losing any game but it is annoying as, if we have lost games, they have tended to be by the odd goal, and the defeat at Luton damaged our goal difference by three," said Coleman.

"It was a smashing game of football and we played our part in it. We made some good chances but they were clinical and we gave the ball away for their second and third goals which ultimately cost us.

"The could then sit back and hit us on the counter attack which they did. I do not think 4-1 reflected the game but Luton were good value for the win.

"We are not going to beat ourselves up about it though, we are not devastated, as I think it was a good performance and we will play worse than that and win.

"You have to be philosophical as we won't win every game and sometimes the opposition deserve credit.

"It's handy to have a big game like Portsmouth to follow it up and now we are preparing for them."
