Neill Collins spoke to the media ahead of Saturday's trip to Lincoln City in Sky Bet League One.
ON BRADFORD RESULT
"Getting beat 5-1 at Bradford is a disappointment. I think we've got keep that really in perspective. We had three full debuts. Part of coming to this club was the fact we've got a really good academy. It's an important part of my remit to ensure that pathway is open - we can't have it both ways. We've qualified for the next round. We gave young players the opportunity and they've done well for the first team. They came up against a very strong Bradford side. I felt for the fans that went there, it wasn't the scoreline we wanted for them. I'm sure they'll understand in the grand scheme of things, it will be one that stands us in good stead for the future."
INJURIES AHEAD OF LINCOLN
"It's very much as you were. We've obviously had international players that have been away. Styles is back, Fabio Jalo is back. We're still waiting on Devante and Jon to return. Luca Connell came through well, Sam Cosgrove's back and in contention. More maybe about who's back than who's out."
ON MICHAEL SKUBALA AND LINCOLN
"Based on a couple of things I've seen from his first couple of games in charge, he's clearly having an impact already. It's great to see coaches coming from all different paths. He's come from a good pedigree, in terms of where he's been at - he obviously knows what he's doing. Great result for them the other night, so another tough away game."
ON THE CHALLENGE THAT LIES AHEAD
"We want to go there and win. We want to go there and give a performance. We're sitting in a great position in the league. It's very, very tight. It feels right now that you're one win away from everyone being really positive and one loss away from everyone being really negative. We just can't go down that route, because a game of football, there are a lot of variables. The important thing is, we get the guys back, a little more consistency in our lineup and we continue to look to improve."
