After a heavy defeat at the hands of Ipswich Town, Chris Gunter offered his very honest opinion on what was a disappointing afternoon in the final home game of the season at Madejski Stadium.
“It’s been the worst outcome possible for us,” the vice-captain explained.
“We knew that we could end the season today, but in the second-half we didn’t do that and now we go into next week needing a massive performance.
“It was nowhere near good enough and we somehow have to take it on the chin so that we can try to sort it out next week.
“It’s hugely disappointing and there are not many words that you can say.”
As well as commenting on the result and what it meant – Gunter was quick to praise the commitment of the supporters, a number of whom stayed behind after the final whistle to give the players that final bit of support ahead of the final game of the campaign.
“To the people that came today, we thank you.
“Even though they won’t have much to be positive about – hopefully they can take the message that it’s massively hurting us, and we will be going into next week to make sure that the worst does not happen.
“The next week is the most important of our lives.
“It is still in our hands. I know that it is a very tough game and so we need to make sure that we go to Cardiff ready for the fight.
“It’s a huge week for us coming up. We need to take everything that we get on the chin and do the job next week.”
