AFTER suffering a set of frustrating results goalkeeper Reice Charles-Cook says he and his teammates have bounced back well as they bid for three points this weekend.

An injury-time equaliser at Lincoln City saw the Imps snatch a point from Town, who had played with 10 men for more than an hour in the 2-2 draw last Saturday.

That was followed up with an equally frustrating outcome in a 2-1 defeat to Accrington Stanley where for the second time in as many games, David Flitcroft’s troops had a man sent off, gave away a penalty and were reduced to 10 men.

However, despite the turbulent few games, the 23-year-old goalkeeper says he and his teammates have had a positive response this week.

“Every game this year has been a big game and this Saturday is no different.

“We are enjoying the run of games and we are trying to get as many games as possible,” said Charles-Cook, who reckons the squad are growing closer together through their run of games.

“We go out there with the same mentality of trying to win every game.

“I thought we were unlucky on Tuesday and I’m sure we can win these games.

“All week we have been working on cutting out mistakes, I don’t expect to see them anymore to be honest, two penalties in two games.

“I like our reaction, as you can see we don’t dwell on it and I’m sure the fans can see we don’t dwell on it, so we are ready to go again.

“Once a referee has made a decision, they aren’t going to change their mind we have seen that and we have got on with it.

“On Tuesday we had 10 men and I thought we looked strong, so for the boys to show such a reaction is good, you can see the boys are starting to come together now.”

Charles-Cook was unable to prevent either spot-kick and even took to Twitter to apologise for his performance at Lincoln where there was some scrutiny over the levelling Imps goal.

While Charles-Cook was deeply frustrated to concede at Sincil Bank, he thanked the fans for the plethora of online responses to restore his confidence.

“Seeing it (Lincoln’s equaliser) back, it looks like a foul, but I know my standards and I think I should have done better,” he added.

“It’s sickening because after that performance I felt like I let the boys down. To get a point is good, but we should have come away with three.

“I let it settle in a bit. The gaffer had a word with me and helped me through it but you have to be a man in that situation.

“The positive responses have helped me and that is what it has been like since I came here, the fans have been excellent. For them to think that of me and lift me up, I thank them for that.”

The former Coventry City man will now turn his attention to Mansfield Town, who visit the Energy Check County Ground tomorrow afternoon, and believes that one of the best games for the club so far this year came in the reverse fixture.

“Mansfield was a very tough place to go and they have a good side, it was a very good result and hopefully we can repeat that,” he added.

“We’ve taken some confidence from the last few games, I think we have been on a good run recently, hopefully it continues.”
