Alan Knill has bemoaned our slow start to the second half in the three two loss to Wycombe Wanderers last weekend.

Torquay were out of the blocks well in the first half, taking the lead twice in the game, but we threw it away in a seven minute spell in the second half according to the gaffer and were very harshly punished for it.

Speaking to the Official Site after the loss Knill said we basically handed them the impetus back after doing so well to keep it in the first 45.

‘It’s tough to take that result because we did everything right and the just switch off, and you concede two goals. It’s what happens at each end because that’s where it counts and we weren’t good enough.’

The annoying thing for Knill is he says we were more than good value for all three points and the lead in the first half, but he just can’t defend how we switched off in the second half and ultimately, erm, defended.

There were good points from the second half, how we got back on track, how we came back at two all and overall the majority of our play, but it was just those combined seven minutes that shot us and consigned us to three league defeats on the bounce.

Onto Mansfield this weekend and hopefully a return to winning ways, or the very least grab the point and try to start an unbeaten run so we give ourselves something to build on again.
