Midfielder, goal scorer and man of the match from the Newport County game, George Francomb has credited the words of manager Neal Ardley during the half time break as being the reason for our much improved second half showing in the game on Good Friday.

Speaking to the Official Site following the match with the gaffer already heaping praise on him for his continued improvement and the part he played in our come back, he was quick to pass the praise back, explaining.

‘Our first half display was not good enough and it’s as simple as that. We did not start at all, but the manager came in and told us a few home truths.’

Francomb obviously doesn’t repeat much of what Ardley said during the interval, but he does admit the obvious that it centred around our first half performance not being good enough and that we clearly had to ‘up our game’ considerably in the second period if we wanted to get anything from the match.

‘We then went 2-0 down, but it showed the character of the team to get back to 202. We want to win these sorts of games, but after being 2-0 down we’ll take a draw in the end. It was a better second half performance and hopefully we can build on that at Plymouth.’

Speaking about his own form, with Ardley again also saying he hasn’t performed how he should’ve done all campaign so far, he says that he is feeling confident and happier now, especially owing to the goals and the performances he’s been putting in of late, but he also had praise for fellow goal scorer, on loan Kwesi Appiah saying he’s been ‘brilliant since he came in’ so he was delighted to see him get a goal as well.

With survival being mathematically possible on Easter Monday in the game against Plymouth, Francomb ends his interview by talking about the importance of that match and he admits these are the sorts of games that as players you have to relish playing in.

‘It’s a nice stadium and we should be playing on a good pitch. We’ll go there and try and impose our game on them. We will not be going there just to get a point because we want to finish strongly and it would be excellent if we could get the three points.’

Six points clear of the drop zone, three games left. You’d be amazed if three points didn’t completely make us safe, because it would take some twist for Wycombe, Bristol Rovers and Northampton to all take three points in their games.
