'But we need to be competitive in the final three games. We have to show absolute integrity.
'Over 35 games we were not good enough to stay in the league.'
Connor insisted he had no regrets and added: “I’ve been very honest in what I’ve tried to do with players and the club.
'I have nothing to reproach myself from over the last 10 games. The reason we’ve failed today is over 35.
'I just want to get through to May 13th and get as many points as possible. I need all the players to commit to that and then sit down as a club and plot the future.'
