Bradley: That Was Heartbreaking

8 February 2014

Defender reacts to late drama at Exeter

It was a cruel way to end an encouraging display for Pompey.

Jake Jervis’ early strike had put them ahead at Exeter and victory was on the cards until Liam Sercombe levelled in the final few seconds.

Sonny Bradley felt that the Blues created enough openings to warrant a three-point haul.

And he was left gutted by the manner in which the win was snatched from their grasp.

The defender said: “It’s heartbreaking because we’d played so well for 90 minutes.

“I thought it would be a game of two halves because of the wind, but it didn’t really turn out that way.

“We had a few chances and they had a few chances, but we probably should have put the match to bed.

“We had good opportunities that could have been put away and then it would have been game over, but that hasn’t happened.

“You can’t afford to switch off at the end. The shot’s come in, has taken a deflection and unfortunately it’s gone in.

“That’s just the way our luck’s going at the minute, but it’s up to us to turn things around. Hopefully we can do that as soon as possible.”

Bradley impressed alongside Ben Chorley in the Blues back-line after coming on for the injured Joe Devera at the end of the first half.

He said: “I felt comfortable with Ben and I think it was the same for him. I’ve had to step out of the side since he came, but you can react in two ways.

“You can either spit your dummy out or you can stay professional and put the effort in on the training ground so you’re ready when you have to go on.

“I dealt with most things well, but that won’t stop me feeling disappointed with the result.”
