Town captain Jimmy Fry is not worried by last weekend’s 2-0 home defeat to Kings Lynn and reveals the team are only focused on their next game against Bedworth this weekend.
Despite looking forward, Jimmy has taken time to reflect on Saturday’s game and concedes that the away side were worthy winners on the day.
“I think overall, they edged it,” he said. “We created a good few chances but they had more of the general play.
“Obviously the early goal really helped them, it definitely galvanised them and allowed them to settle into the game much quicker than we did.
“For the rest of the game, we were always playing catch up but in all honesty, I don’t think our performance level was too bad.
“I don’t think it was a terrible performance, but as a group, we just didn’t do quite enough against a really good, strong and well-organized outfit.
“There are positives to come from the game,” he said. “We did some things very well. It is not doom and gloom by any stretch.”
The skipper sees Saturday as a blip and believes the team are capable of an immediate reaction when they take on Bedworth this weekend.
“Losing on Saturday is not the end of the world, we have six games to go and that’s what we have to be focused on.
“I think it will be fairly easy to pick ourselves up, we are still in a good position, our destiny is still very much in our own hands.
“We’ll learn from the defeat to Kings Lynn and we will be looking to put it right this weekend against Bedworth.
He is aware that Stratford are expected to win but has no concerns over the team entering the game complacent, and knows a professional performance will be required.
“I’m confident that we can bounce back,” he said. “But I am always confident going into any game, regardless of who it is we are facing.
“Obviously this Saturday, it is Bedworth, the league table says we are favourites but that means nothing, we still have to go out there and do a job.
“I’m sure that will be the case, I know that we will turn up with the right attitude and hopefully we can win the game and get back on track.”
