“It’s probably the most disappointed we have felt so far this season – It’s never nice to lose a game so late." - City's Reice Charles-Cook

The 'keeper reflects on a bitterly disappointing late defeat against the Blades at the Ricoh...

Reice Charles-Cook admitted that the late defeat against Sheffield United was possibly the biggest disappointment of the campaign so far. 

After fan protests had stopped the game momentarily, the play resumed in the 87th minute, with Billy Sharp scoring the winning not long after. 

‘Keeper Charles-Cook replaced the injured Lee Burge in the starting XI to put in an impressive display during the game.

“It’s probably the most disappointed we have felt so far this season – It’s never nice to lose a game so late on, particularly when we arguably deserved something from it,” He said.

“We were against a very good football team and I thought that made for a very entertaining game for those watching. 

“I think it does show there is some quality within this team as we’ve played most of the top sides in the league recently and been desperately unlucky not to come away with something.”

Interim manager Mark Venus had praised the performance of the ‘keeper following the game, but Charles-Cook himself was keen to mention the recent form of the injured Lee Burge.

He added: “Lee has been outstanding recently, and at this moment it is probably more of a cover situation that I am between the sticks.

“If I get given chance I will do all I can to help the team and try to impress, but I’m sure Lee will be fit again shortly and recalled because he has done very well since coming in.

“It’s a little frustrating but this happened to him last year. We are both good young goalkeepers, so I’ve just got to wait my turn again and hopefully I get the starting position back.”
