Speaking after the match, Sam Vokes was quoted as saying: "I thought I should have had at least two goals. definitely had the best chance of the game. Sometimes they go in and sometimes they don't. I had the chances to get us the points but, unfortunately, it just didn't happen. The performance from the lads was brilliant and if we had taken our chances, we would have won. We had big spells in the game when we could have taken something from it but it wasn't to be. If we take the same attitude to Oldham, we can get the points there".

Manager Kevin Bond was quoted as saying: "I thought we did enough to win the game and it was only because we didn't finish that we didn't get the points. But it's difficult to be too critical of the lads because I thought they performed really well under the circumstances. We carved out chances but, unfortunately, didn't take them. Until they scored the second goal, they had had three chances, the first one being when the ball held up in the wind and caused confusion at the back. We gave away the ball inside our half for their second goal and we must have had half-a-dozen good chances to score. The performance was good. The centre-halves performed really well and Vokesy was a real handful throughout the game and probably would have had a hat-trick on another day. He's come on leaps and bounds and done really well. His end product wasn't as good as it has been in previous weeks and if it had, we wouldn't be bemoaning our luck".
