Jarrow Roofing midfielder Lee Kerr believes the team shouldn’t be worried after their 4-0 defeat to FA Vase holders Morpeth Town.
The midfielder struck the crossbar inside the opening 30 seconds of the game and thinks that one moment in particular in the second-half could have changed the momentum in the game.
“I don’t think we need to worry too much,” he said. “We played well in the second half and the keeper made a world class save to be fair to him.
“If we had have scored then, maybe we would have gone on to get a point or maybe even three, but we don’t need to worry.
“We will pick ourselves up and go again, same mentality next week and hopefully get another three points.”
The first goal of the afternoon came from a goalkeeping error, and Kerr had some said the team will stick together no matter what the result.
He added: “I can’t really remember that, I was at the front post for the corner. A couple of the defenders said it was the keeper’s fault, but we’re in it together.
“We win together, we lose together and we draw together, so we pick ourselves up and go again.”
Mark Collingwood and Richie McLoughlin have a week to prepare the side for next Saturday’s clash with Ryhope CW, who sit three points ahead.
