And the Englishman has admitted that his side was unable to demonstrate on either side the quality needed to stave off the threat of relegation.
‘I am bitterly disappointed. I am hurt. I’m gutted, ”he told Sky Sports. While that has been looming over us for a while, right now there are no words I can put together, other than being gutted that we didn’t make it this year.
‘Although we always knew it was going to be a challenge, it is bitterly disappointing that we did not succeed.
‘I would probably sum it up in that game to be fair. Between the boxes we had our moments and looked a good side. We have failed on both sides.
“ In these clinical moments, you need those final details, you need the clinical quality to score goals, and we have fallen short. While we have had progression and improvements, we have fallen short on this level. ‘
Parker said the lack of quality of his squad at both ends of the field was the reason for their plight
The Englishman said he wanted to come up with a plan to get the club started
Parker added that he is keen for the club to avoid the ‘roller coaster’ of constant relegation and promotion between the top two tiers, saying he will hold talks with the club about drawing up a plan to move in the right direction. to go.
‘We have to find out what we need to do to improve that as a football club. That’s a promotion, a relegation and a promotion. We have to figure out exactly what to do next to try and keep a level over us and that’s really the next task.
“We just fell short. We have to train very quickly as a football club where we went wrong this year. In every road there will be elements that we must understand. I feel like I know, but now is not the time to really get into the details.
‘What is essential and vital to me is that we sit down, we analyze, we learn and don’t go through the same cycle. The most important thing is to break that cycle and figure out exactly what we need to improve as a football club.
‘I will be the first to bring up my point, I don’t want to get into this league and be relegated. I want to push this club forward, that will be the key. ‘
