Audio interview with John Gannon from Radio Nottingham (RealPlayer needed)

Transcribed from Stags World:
Very tight game. Wasn't a great deal in it. Both defences were on top. Thought we defended very well.

Earnshaw very dangerous and unfortunately he took one in the second half.
I think Earnshaw could play at a higher level.

We thought our best policy was to attack.
We couldn't make clear enough chances and didn't get the ball into the areas enough.
We were strong and didn't give a lot away.
Needed to find a bit more quality in the final third of the pitch.

When we went behind, we put Larkin on to give us more pace and upset them a bit more.
But we couldn't get the ball forward early enough or quickly enough.
The last 15 minutes we just couldn't get the ball forward enough.

We're really disappointed to have lost.
Adam and Rhys feel they were punished for one slip and against other forwards in this division we'd probably have gone away with 0-0. On the whole Adam and Rhys were excellent.

We go into the final 7 games in good heart knowing we can take points off others. We've got some big big games at home.

The manager has a few players in mind to sign before the transfer deadline, whether that will be possible we'll just have to see.
