Taylor's Take On Grimsby Game

Wycombe maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 1-1 draw against Grimsby Town at Blundell Park, courtesy of a last-gasp equaliser from Leon Johnson. The Blues had gone a goal behind within the first minute of the game.


Wanderers' manager Peter Taylor spoke to the club's official website following the game.



Taylor on the early Grimsby goal :

'It was a shocking start and it was really poor from three or four of our players. The last thing you want to do is to give them a lift because they were already up for the game with it being Mike Newell's first match in charge.'



The boss was pleased with the Wycombe fightback :

'I'm pleased with the effort from the lads after that and we could have scored a few goals and won the game. I can only praise the players for the way they kept trying to play and we just wanted to keep on attacking. If you're going to lose, you might as well go down fighting.'



The forwards worked hard said Taylor:

"I thought our forwards were unlucky not to score. Chris Zebroski's workrate was incredible. One minute he was making an excellent sliding tackle in the right-back position and the next minute he's popping up in their six yard box trying to score a goal."



On Doherty's sending off :

'I thought it was a touch harsh', said Taylor. 'We will be asking the referee to have another look at it. Grimsby staff and players have all said to me that they agree it was was a harsh decision and I don't feel it deserved a red card.'



Wycombe entertain Darlington in their next match as they attempt to stay at the top of the table and extend their unbeaten league run to eleven games.
