Captain speaks out
Sean Morrison came out to speak to the press following a tough day in South Yorkshire this past weekend. Read his thoughts below or watch the full interview on Reading FC Player.
A tough day at the office Sean?
First of all I’d like to thank the fans for coming up in the first place to support us. It wasn’t good enough today, nowhere near. It’s just disappointing – there were positives in the game, we moved the ball well in some spells but it just looked like every time they attacked they were going to score. We were too open, we’ve just got to put it down as one of those days and all we can do is take the positives and move on next week to a massive game against Q.P.R.
You seemed to tweak something when you got a good block in during the first half?
I’m fine, I got a couple of knocks in the game but just general knocks that I can run off. I’ll be fine on Monday. But once again, I’d like to reiterate that it wasn’t good enough. We’d like to put it right for the fans that traveled up. I think we owe them one.
I guess you can park this as a one off, but what about the impact on morale, can you get yourselves back up for Q.P.R?
Massively confident. We’ve got a great squad here, we’ll do the debrief Monday and after that the game will be swept under the rug and forgotten about. This kind of thing happens in football, sometimes these kind of results happen – it happened today and all we can do is take the positives. Once the game is analysed and we go over it, we move on to the training ground and make sure we make it right against Q.P.R.
You’ve been part of enough good comebacks in the past to know this squad can bounce back?
I don’t think we should look into it too much. It’s our third defeat of the season, we’re still in the playoffs – though the gap has widened from the top four. We need to strengthen up, we need to get the nastier side of the game right. We’ve got a massive week next week and we want to finish on a positive before the international break.
