Jake Taylor: We need to stick together

Exeter City player Jake Taylor says it is important that the team sticks together despite a run of three defeats from their opening three League Two games.

The Grecians lost on Tuesday night against Crawley Town 1-0, but could have easily come away with a victory having created much the better chances throughout the game.

Heading into Saturday’s game at Accrington Stanley, Taylor said it was important the players learn the lessons from the defeat but, at the same time, not start to point the finger of blame and cause the dressing room to become fractured.

 “It is important we stick together,” he said. “We are a tight group of boys and staff and we all get on really well.

“It is important at times like these that we do all stick together and I think we definitely will. We are a tight group and Saturday (at Accrington) we will look to stick together and grind something out.

“There are plenty more games to play and there are a lot more points to play for. We are a very good team and in the up and coming weeks I’m sure we will put performances together and win games.”

The performance against Crawley actually merited at least a point from the match on the balance of play. However, Taylor added that football doesn’t work that way and you have to take your opportunies to score when you are on top.
 
“It is obviously a disappointing result after dominating spells in the game and creating a few chances,” he said. “To concede like we did, late on, it was a hard one to take but if you don’t score when you are on top then it is hard.

“I thought we were the better side for long periods of the match, but you get nothing for that unless you score a goal and win the game. That is football and we are gutted in the dressing room, but we are going to try and put it right at the weekend.”
