Moving On From Rochdale Defeat

Last updated : 07 November 2009 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
After the defeat to Rochdale last weekend, popular defender, and last seasons Exiles Player Of The Season, Jason Pearce speaks of the need to put the result to bed and move on.

Speaking on the Clubs Official Web Site, Pearce is quoted as saying: "We didn't see that one coming on Saturday. They scored right on half time and that is a terrible time to concede a goal. The second goal, when we were on top, was a real sucker punch. It ended 4-0, but it was never a 4-0 game. If my header had been given, it could have been a completely different game, but it's gone now. Credit to Rochdale though, they are a good team and will do well this season. We did play well at times and we can take that in to the three hard games away from home coming up. It was a set back, but the important thing now is how we react and we have to go in to those games positively. It will be tough at Chesterfield as they are a god side as they proved at Dean Court. Every game is tough, but we are top of the league and we are there for a reason and we can go there with confidence. There is pressure on us because of the financial rewards that the FA Cup gives to the club, but we have to deal with those pressures. We are confident and have put the Rochdale game behind us. We want to get the result completely out of our system and the best way to do that is to get a positive result at Chesterfield. We showed in the second half against them at Dean Court what we are capable of, and we need to do that for 90 minutes, not just 45".
