Evatt | We Have To Keep Marching Forward

Ian Evatt spoke of the frustration at not picking up all three points following the 3-3 draw with Charlton Athletic at the Toughsheet Community Stadium. 

Goals from Victor Adeboyejo, Paris Maghoma and Jón Daði Böðvarsson were not enough for Wanderers to take victory as Charlton twice took the lead during the game and provided stern opposition for the Whites. 

Wanderers showed great resilience and belief to come from behind on two occasions, and with a number of notable absentees from the starting line-up, Evatt spoke of his pride at the continued effort of his squad.

“When you score three goals at home, you’re disappointed not to win the game,” he said. 

“First half - in patches we were okay - but then in patches not so good.

“There’s been an awful lot of disruption in the team. We’ve lost our keeper, our captain, our leading goalscorer, plus a midfield player who has been outstanding all season now suspended - so we’ve had a lot going against us. 

“But the players keep marching forwards and second half - from going behind twice - they rallied and deserved to win the game, and that’s what’s frustrating. 

"It’s a tough period and we’re still finding way of getting results. 

“Winning is the all-important thing today but we didn’t manage to lose and with the scenarios I’ve just named, there’s many teams that aren’t able to pull through. So I’m proud of the players and we just need to keep marching forwards. 

“For us right now it’s tough, but all we can do is not feel sorry for ourselves, keep working hard and keep the togetherness going and things will get better.”
