Gary Whild reacts to Emirates FA Cup exit
*'We've got to use that second-half performance and take it into the league games' - by Luke Turner*
PUBLISHED: 6th Nov 17

Solihull Moors caretaker boss Gary Whild believes that the team can take confidence from their second-half display, despite exiting the Emirates FA Cup.

The Moors slipped to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of League Two Wycombe Wanderers, but Whild applauded his side’s mentality to keep going.

He said: “In the second-half, I thought we were on the front foot and had a few little chances which you need a bit of luck to get a goal.

“We’ve got to use that second-half performance and take it into the league games.”

Sean St Ledger made his debut for the club and Whild was quick to praise the 32-year-old along with goalkeeper Charlie Bannister, who impressed between the sticks.

“He (Bannister) did great and for a young lad, it’s a great experience playing in a game like that against league opposition in front of a big crowd – he came out of it well.

“I’m sure he (St Ledger) is (knackered) because it’s his first game for a long while and he’ll admit himself that certain areas were rusty, but all credit to him the way he came through.

“He’ll be important for the football club moving forward and you could see little glimpses of that today with his experience.

“The lads have trained hard and the preparation has been good. I was glad that in the second-half they could go out and make what we’ve done this week worthwhile – they had a real go.”

With all eyes now focusing back onto the Vanarama National League, Whild insists that the side must take the positives and head into the game against Sutton United on Saturday with confidence.

“They’ve got to take confidence from that and take it into the National League because I know the club is working hard to try and have a good future,” He continued.

“There’s a lot of positive on that side, so the club want to be at the highest level and it’s a must that we try and take that into the league.

“In the second-half, there was something about them and they didn’t throw the towel in. We’ve got to help them and we still need two or three in to give them added confidence.”
