SWINDON defender Joe Devera’s verdict on Sunday’s performance in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final was that it only lasted for 45 minutes.

The 25-year-old deputised for injured skipper Paul Caddis at right-back at Wembley and had injury added to insult with just over ten minutes to go after being given a bloody nose by the arm of Chesterfield’s injury-time goalscorer Craig Westcarr.

But Devera was left more dejected by his side’s below-par second half showing and thinks that their failure to capitalise on first half chances cost them.

“I’m just feeling upset really – I feel like we didn’t put in the performance that we needed and we just didn’t do enough,” said the defender.

“I think we were comfortable in the first half but a little too comfortable. We should have scored.

“Obviously, they scored early and we didn’t really come out in the second half – we had to chase the game and change things around.

“The goal went in really early so there was a long way to go but it was always going to be hard.”

Devera did still admit that he enjoyed playing at the country’s most famous stadium and is now looking back to Town’s promotion chase.

He said: “It was a massive day for everyone and very exciting to play at the stadium.

“We’ve got the league to worry about now so we’ve just got to get back to working hard now.”
