Andy Melville looks forward to Torquay

United welcome Torquay United to the Kassam Stadium on Saturday, looking for an immediate response to Tuesday night’s defeat against Dagenham. First team Coach Andy Melville believes that his side need to use Tuesday as a spur to push United forward once again. He told Yellow Player:

“It’s good to have a game almost straight away. It was obviously a very disappointing result but we still felt that we created plenty of chances in the game. We always knew that it was going to be difficult, but saying that their goalkeeper has made a great save right at the very end so it could have been a different story. Hopefully we can bounce back quickly now.”

United had been in decent form before Tuesday’s setback, which Andy thinks perhaps heightened the frustration:

“The disappointment was because we had set ourselves up nicely for the game, and then we came up a little bit short. But the lads seem up for it in training over the last couple of days. We all believe in ourselves and the league is so tight. I think seven of the games ended up as draws the other night so we didn’t lose too much ground on the play-off teams. Things can change in an instant, but first and foremost we have to make sure that we concentrate on ourselves and get the three points on Saturday.”

The key is now is to get back to winning ways as soon as possible:

“Tuesday might have been a little bit of a warning for us and hopefully we can use that result in a positive way, go on a bit of a run now and start afresh against Torquay.”
