Defender Kevin Amankwaah talked to the press following the 1-1 draw at Northampton Town on Tuesday 1st March 2005.

Qu: You must be disappointed not to have got all three points tonight?

KA: We wanted the win tonight. Eight points clear at the top of the table looks and feels much better than six points. We felt that we did do our job but switched off that one little moment and it cost us.

Qu: Up until that moment you looked like you were controlling the game.

KA: The first half we played really well and we got in their faces and we looked like a top of the table team. Although I thought we defended well in the second half, they were throwing people forward and coming on to us a lot more. So in the end it was a struggle but I felt that we did look solid. In the end their pressure tolled as they got that goal.

Qu: Were you happy with your own performance?

KA: Before the game we set targets individually to do our jobs and I thought that we did. It was that one lapse in concentration that cost us.

Qu: I expect you would like to extend your loan deal at Huish Park?

KA: I am staying on for another month. I am enjoying it here as I am getting a look-in here, which I wasnt getting a City. I am starting to feel at home here. They are a good bunch of lads and the club is on the up.

Qu: With Scott Guyett being out injured, it could give you a chance for a run in the first team?

KA: I will have to be patient. Its an honest club here and if you work hard you will get your chance. Now I have got a chance, I am trying to grab it with both hands.

Qu: How have you found working under Gary Johnson?

KA: He is a great manager and one that I think will go a long way.

Qu: Northampton looked a decent side tonight and I expect you are glad you wont be playing them every week?

KA: They looked like a good passing team and at the moment it looks like two points lost but eventually we will see it as a point gained even though they scored in the last minute.
