Cox: Time for talking has stopped

15 April 2013

Paul Cox has called on his players to finish the job with two games left of the season to play.

In the league table, we sit a point behind leaders Kidderminster Harriers, but with a game in hand over the Aggborough outfit, away at Hereford United tomorrow night.

Speaking at this morning’s press meeting the message from the manager was clear: to win at all costs, as he brushed away questions about different possibilities.

“I am getting tired of people asking me about permutations and points.  That can sometimes affect mindset and focus.  It’s getting boring for me now.  We can sit here and play with calculators and all that," he said.

“The lads just need to go and win – it’s as simple as that.  Win two games and we’ll be champions, if we don’t, we won’t. 

Paul Cox is speaking to our Head of Media & Communications Mark Stevenson 

“We can play around with minds, try and cajole people, use kidology. [But] the time for talking has stopped now, it’s time to get our heads down and try and win a football match.  

“I said there’d be some twists and turns; there was [at Braintree].  We have to pick ourselves up and get on with it now.   We need to get our heads down and get back to do what we’re good at.

“It’s not about entertaining, it’s about getting between four to six points over these next two games.  These boys are capable of it.  They’re such an honest bunch but sometimes you can try too hard.  We were a bit erratic with the ball in the second half [on Saturday] and lost our shape – all the things that have made us a good team we didn’t apply.  But they’re only human.  

“We have a week left of the season.  We will dust ourselves down and I want us to give it a real good go.”

Cox has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the trip to Edgar Street tomorrow night (7.45pm).
