Listen to Town boss Paul Hurst who tries to make sense of tonight’s defeat to Leyton Orient.

Speaking on iFollow Mariners, he said: “We never got started in the first half.

“That performance was not anywhere close to what I expect, and I think if the players are totally honest, what they expect.

“Second half was better, but it could only go one way realistically. I have to say I thought the subs had a positive impact for us. They looked like they wanted to be out there.

“I’ve asked questions of the players, there were a few home truths in there about the overall picture, what this means, and what it means to people directly, whether it’s players, staff, staff at the football club as a whole.

“Some lads have been in the league below, I’ve certainly been there and know what it’s about.

“Whether it’s loan players, players up at the end of the season, players that are here beyond the end of the season, we’ve all got to understand and appreciate that situation we’re in.

“At the minute, I think we’re all in agreement that things have improved, but they’re not translating to the pitch when it matters.

“It falls at my doorstep, I accept that, I’ve got to try and find a way of us playing, find the best team, but at the minute, I think we’d all be in agreement that’s very difficult.

“We’re not getting enough players that are anywhere close to the form that we need them to be in.”
