I SHOULD really have scored a hat-trick but their lad pushed me as I was about to shoot. I scored two goals earlier this season for Chester against Bury when I think Jim was watching but it was good to score a couple now.

I was disappointed not to start but this makes up for it and we have given the fans something to remember going into the summer break.

The way we finished our season will give us confidence that we can build for the new season.

'It was a great start for us and Owen will hurt you in those areas as he showed with the ball for Frannie and you know it will pay dividends.

We got a bit sloppy and encouraged Cardiff back into it. We rejigged it to provide a bit more energy.

Jon has got a terrific work ethic and we know he has been working extremely hard on his game. Both goals were excellent.

We are very fortunate to have him and he will feel the benefit of having pre-season with us and will be a big asset to the club.

This sets us up for next season. Slowly but surely the players are getting to grips with a new manager, new ideas and a new backroom staff and a different work ethic at this football club.

We want them to take ownership of that and the season is coming to an end too soon, although they do need the break.

We will not settle for mediocrity - 14th is not where we want to be but the last two months have been encouraging. When the players come back they know the expectations that we have of them, and what they should have for themselves.

Town boss Jim Magilton

It is no good creating chances if you don't take them and our defending for the first two goals was suicidal.

A lot of people said we were good enough to go up but we were not ready to go up and that showed.

We are in the rebuilding process and it is going to take a little bit of time.

Ten games ago we were in with a shout of automatic promotion and six games ago we were in the play-off places but we were not ready to do it.

We are very disappointed but when you look at it in the cold light of day we have come a long way in a short space of time and hopefully the ones that stay will benefit from that.
