McArthur: This Squad Has A Lot Of Character

20 December 2014

James McArthur thought he had scored his second goal in two weeks and got the side back in the game but the flag was raised and his effort was ruled out. A goal then could have been a crucial turning point in the match. 

The midfielder is the first to admit that mistakes happen and he just had to get on with the game. 

"Obviously its disappointing that the official has made a mistake but that happens in football, as a player we make mistakes and even though it is difficult to take we have to move on.

"If the goal had been allowed we would have a good bit of momentum going into the latter stages of the game but it wasn’t to be and we couldn’t get back in the game."

After a good first 45 minutes an early second half goal gave the home side an advantage and the visitors were disappointed to suffer such a defeat.

"As a group in the dressing room we are really disappointed, after doing so well in the first half and frustrating them we then see them go ahead and from our point of view to then concede three was not good.

"This group has an awful lot of character that can be seen in our performances but we are going to need everyone to step up over the next few weeks that sees a number of games as always at this time of year. 

"We need everyone pulling together and making sure we get the points we need and hopefully get our next win sooner rather than later."
