'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wright Wants Concentration

David Wright has said that Tuesday night's defeat at Swindon has shown that there isn't such a big difference in quality throughout League One, between those at the top and those at the bottom.

The experienced defensive midfielder has been drafted into the U's squad for the next eighteen months, initially to help steady the side and guide the younger players towards League One safety.

However, with Tuesday's opponents now sat third in the table, Wright admitted to the club's official website after the game that there wasn't much between the sides.

'We were cancelling each other out so it did sort of have 0-0 written all over it,' he suggested.

'There wasn't a lot of quality in the game, but credit to them for punishing our one lapse; that's why they're pushing for automatic promotion.

'That's the thing though, we're not talking about raising your game by ten or twenty-percent at this level, it's just that half a percent tokeep your concentration up for ninety minutes.

'One slip and a team like Swindon punishes us.'

The midfielder arrived on a free transfer from Crystal Palace around a fortnight ago, and has picked up three ninety minutes so far with the U's.

With six points from nine so far in that time and another home game to follow this weekend, Wright insists that Joe Dunne's men can't afford to lose concentration.

He refelected: 'It was disappointing how we conceded the goal as they didn't particularly open us up, we just swtiched off from a throw in and that's what makes it particularly disappointing.

'But we have to look at the game, take the positives and work out a way to play on Saturday as the pitches are tough at the moment.

'I think Swindon dominated a bit more in the second half, but without switching off we'd have a point now and we'd be happy with that.'
