Paul Sturrock spoke to the media after Town's 1-0 win over Torquay United this afternoon at Plainmoor.
'It was disappointing but we saw the good last week, but today was bad. I'm not looking forward to seeing the ugly. We have churned a result but not played well which, if we are going for promotion, then we have to do that.
'The back four and goalkeeper did very well but as a defensive unit, we were disappointing. The expectation levels after Saturday were high and I was worried about how we would come out. We realised quickly that we couldn't get our passing game so I brought Lee Peacock on at the break to give us an aerial threat.
'We had the rub of the green today but that's football and why it is such a great game. Getting three points is vital and you have to remember we had lost our last two league games. There was uneasiness in the team - but we got ourselves into the right positions and pushed on.
'Ady and Jerel handled Micky Evans did very well and Phil Smith played well. I am a great believer in continuity and he made two great saves. He hasn't let himself down so far so the shirt is his and he will play next week.
'I have learned that we can be both bad and good. We don't have too much experience and losing Paul Evans was a blow. Paul has a medial ligament strain but we will give him every opportunity ahead of next week's game. Sofiene did ok and he soldiered up and down the left hand side. We may need to bring someone in to add to the squad.
'I said in midweek that I had food for thought, and today that has given me more food for thought. We are not the finished article by a long way but we have to be in the rat race at the top of the table, and we can only do that by winning game.
'The fans were superb today but we have to appreciate that our performance wasn't good enough if we are going to be at the cutting edge end of the league.'
