We Were Too Nice - Dunn

10 October 2020

David Dunn was left frustrated once again as Barrow were held to a 1-1 draw by Leyton Orient at The Progression Solicitors Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Bluebirds looked on course to register their first league win of the campaign after The O’s were reduced to ten men on 9 minutes when Dan Happe was sent-off, before Josh Kay put Dunn’s men in front with a crisp drive. 

However, Danny Johnson produced a brilliant finish of his own early in the second half to bring the visitors level and Barrow could find no way of recovering the lead and had to settle for a share of the spoils. 

That’s two points dropped,” Dunn told iFollow Barrow afterwards. 

I feel like a lot of players are finding the step up a big gulf and we still seem to be finding our feet so we need to address it really quickly because we’re dropping too many points. 

I felt that were too naïve today at times, to be honest. The players have got learn quickly. We were little bit too nice and a little bit too naïve and League football is really tough. 

We huffed and puffed, and created some decent opportunities but that final little bit is where we’re found wanting a little bit so there is lots of work to do and we just have to take the positives out of it. 

We’re a new team and, of course, at some point we’ve got to get better. We can’t be a new team forever – we've had a good two months at it and we need to crack on now. 

“The lads are disappointed in there but, ultimately, the responsibility lies with me so we’ll get back in to training and work really hard again next week. 

Look out for our full post-match video interview with David Dunn coming soon on iFollow.
