Dyer reflects on loss

30 November 2013

Striker Ross Dyer believes ‘luck is not quite on our side’ at present, following today’s 2-1 home defeat to Morecambe.

The Shrimps came from behind to take all three points from One Call Stadium, courtesy of second half goals by Jack Redshaw and Kevin Ellison.

Meanwhile, Dyer was pleased to score his first goal on home turf in the Football League, despite being bitterly disappointed with the full-time result.

“At half time it was a dream for me really,” said the 25-year-old. “I’ve struggled with injury problems for the last 12 months, so to come back and score on my home debut in the Football League was a dream return.

“In the second half, we made a few individual errors, which is really poor. We’ve gone on to lose the game when we looked the likely winners at one stage.

“Maybe it was a bit of naivety on the team’s part. Individual errors, we can’t account for, and obviously with penalties, we don’t mean to miss them. It’s just one of those things.

“Luck is not quite on our side at the minute, but I think the effort and determination has been a different class. If we keep doing that then we can turn it around.”

The frontman believes next weekend’s match at Oldham Athletic in the FA Cup with Budweiser provides us with an excellent opportunity to rediscover the form, which we showed earlier on in the campaign.  

He continued: “Last season, the FA Cup helped us kick-start our season, so we will be hoping something similar will happen again this term. 

“It’s one of those games where we can go out and express ourselves and hopefully if we can beat Oldham, it will carry on into our league form.”

Reflecting on his own current form, Dyer added: “At the moment I’m feeling confident. I’ve always wanted to play up front and I’ve shown what I can do. I’ve come back and scored two in two. 

“I’ve always believed in myself I just need everyone else to as well. The gaffer has shown faith in me so hopefully I can score a few more goals this season.”
