The Hornets were not able to win it, though, and this defeat will hurt for a while. But, once the scars have healed, it’s all about preparing for what is to be an important next season.
“A few of the lads were in tears, the message really is that you’ve got to go away now and clear your heads and come back next season ready to go again,” said Mullins.
“It’s part of football, we all know at the beginning of the season that relegation is a possibility for any club, unfortunately it’s happened to us. Whichever way you want to look at it, however people dissect the season, it’s happened.
“I think it’s been a tough season for everyone, I think we knew this was a possibility a couple of weeks back, but it’s ended up a reality and it’s one we’re going to have to deal with now as a group of staff and players. We’re going to have to pick ourselves up and get ready to go again next year.”
