IT’S been a week of mixed emotions. On one hand it was great to get away with the Wales under-21s, but it’s also really tough to miss Wrexham games.
In the past these games have been called off when we’ve had players away, but with the hectic schedule we’ve got I suppose the Wrexham games had to go ahead. It was just really frustrating to miss them.
It was great to get away for a few days and a really good trip, and as a footballer you always look forward to times when you can represent your country.
While we only drew 0-0 away in Luxembourg we had a great 5-1 win at home to them on Wednesday night at Llanelli.
In fairness the first game away should have been the same scoreline, but we just couldn’t take the chances that came our way. But there is another year and a half of qualifying ahead of us, so we will come back and look to start all over again next time.
But I was back in Wrexham on Thursday night to watch the game and obviously if we hadn’t conceded in the last minute I’d be here now saying what a great win it was and how much we are still well in the hunt.
Their goal bounced about and then it’s gone through two sets of players’ legs and just past our keeper’s leg and hit the back of the net and that was that – more points we’ve dropped in the last minute.
These late goals are absolutely killing us at the moment, and we have got to shake ourselves out of it.
Everyone was down after the game, but the manager tries his best to keep us all going. Every manager is boiling after matches, especially conceding a late goal, but we always sit down the next day and watch the video and he talks us through it and tries to help us as players, and that’s exactly what he did again yesterday.
We know it is going to be a tough ask now to get into the play-offs but either way they are still there to go for – and I can assure fans that’s exactly what we are going to do.
