CLARKE FELT IRON WERE UNLUCKY

16 November 2015

United defender Jordan Clarke feels the Iron were unlucky to suffer a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Swindon Town.

Clarke felt his side were the better team throughout the game and stated that two defensive errors cost them.

"Even though we've lost the game, I feel we still should have won that game. We feel as though we were the better side," he told The Iron PlayerHD.

"There were some lapses in concentration. We weren't clinical enough at times and that's how football goes."

He reiterated if the chances that were created were taken then it would have been a very different story.

He also pointed out that things would be far more concerning if the opportunities weren't coming.

"Although the performance as a whole wasn't as good as previous ones. I feel we still did enough to create the chances and, if we put those chances away, we win the game," he said.

"If we were just conceding goals and weren't creating any chances, then that'd definitely be more worrying."

He insisted that the defeat won't dent the confidence United have gathered over recent weeks and says it'll make the squad more determined to bounce back quickly.

Clarke stated that this is what everyone will be striving to do in next weekend's home clash with Bradford City.

"We're not going to lose confidence from it, if anything it's going to make us more hungry to win the next game," he insisted.

"We're more pleased that it's at home, because we can put it right for the fans."
