Gloucester City manager Chris Todd has made a statement of defiance following his side’s loss to Vanarama National League South bottom side Weston-super-Mare, but he admits there is a realisation that the team could go down.
City were beaten 3-1 in yesterday’s home game, which sees them slip into the relegation zone. It was only Weston-super-Mare’s third league win from 24 this season.
Manager Todd has responded with the following statement:
“To all Gloucester City fans, yesterday was a massive low for everyone involved with the football club. There is no one hurting more this morning than myself, I can promise you that.
“After such a positive first-half performance, the second half was a huge letdown and disappointment. As the manager of the football club, I take full responsibility and do not accept that second half’s display.
“What yesterday did do is prove we are in a relegation scrap and realisation that we are not good enough at the present time and could go down. This has not been right all season and cracks have been papered over.
“I am however very capable of turning this situation around. I will do everything in my power to make this happen. There is a plan in place and things will happen in the next few days. We as a club can only do this together and need everyone pulling in the right direction.”
