"It cuts deep, but we have to be proud!"

Skipper on dealing with the disappointment and using it to go one better...

29 May 2017

"It’s tough. It cuts really deep. We always knew it was going to be a tight game and for it to end that way, it is sore."

Captain Chris Gunter spoke to the media after a cruel, cruel end to his team's season at Wembley Stadium. 

"There isn’t too much you can say straight after. You have just got to try and deal with it, try and get over the disappointment over the next few weeks and, when you come back in, you have to use it to make you stronger. 

"It’s a case of dealing with the disappointment right now – a lot of work has gone into that game and the whole season. And to lose out to a couple of penalties is a very harsh way to lose...but congratulations to Huddersfield.

It’s a case of dealing with the disappointment right now – a lot of work has gone into that game and the whole season.

"It was obviously a tight game and I’m sure it will be a quiet journey on the bus back to the stadium. 


"I think generally the way you feel is that you can deal with this disappointment yourself but you feel sorry for other people, for your teammates, your staff and the manager, your family and friends and obviously the fans who have come and seen their team get so close. 

"I’m sure when we come back next season and everything has been put into perspective a little bit more, then we will be saying that we can use the year we have just had and the disappointment of today. 

"Straight after the game, it is always easy to say that we want to go and win promotion next season. But that has to be the aim. 

"We need to be proud of what we have done but words won’t do much at the moment. Time will help us to get over this and we will be better for this experience."
