Reaction: Forster on Accrington defeat

2 December 2018

Apologies, this video is unvailable.

Jordon Forster is calling on his Cheltenham Town teammates to pick themselves up and get going again after Saturday's Emirates FA Cup exit against Accrington Stanley.

The Scottish defender played the full 90 minutes in the Robins FA Cup loss against the Sky Bet League One outfit at the Wham Stadium as Accrington claimed a place in the third round with a 3-1 win.

With a Checkatrade Trophy knockout round game to come on Tuesday, then a tasty League Two clash with Grimsby Town to follow, Forster is eager that the squad get going again for two exciting clashes in the week ahead.

"I think in the first half we dominated the game in spells, it was fairly even overall but we had a good spell in the first half, but I think we probably should have scored a couple of goals as well," he said.

"Second half we came out and never got up to the pace of the game and they took advantage of it. We gave them cheap goals and when you come to a team, especially a division higher and give cheap goals away, you're going to pay the penalty.

"We've got an important game in a couple of days and a massive game in the league, so win, lose or draw you go again. We need to lick our wounds and look forward - simple as that."
