💪 "Good teams react. So it's about how we respond now"

Royals defender determined to go to Loftus Road with the confidence high and a belief we can win...

11 December 2020

Wednesday night could so easily have turned in our favour in the kick of a second half penalty. Score and we look favourites to win it, but it was saved and it took the wind out of our sails. Now, we look to stay positive and respond with a performance at Loftus Road.

"Everybody will look at us and last time we lost, we fell off the cliff a little bit form-wise," Michael Morrison said after the disappiontment of defeat against his former employers in midweek.

"But it’s about how we react now. Good teams will react, if we want to be up where we want to be, we have to show that different side to us, react and quickly change things.

"There was no problem with our endeavour, our structure was right, no problem with what we were trying to do on Wednesday night. Sometimes it’s going to come off, some times it’s not.

"That’s what happens in the Championship, games hinge on small details and key moments and we came out on the wrong side of it on Wednesday night.

"But there is a lot more confidence within the group and what we can achieve. I think people were doubting us and sometimes the lads listen to that. Certainly now we’re a bit stronger in our belief of what we’re doing. Definitely more connected.

"And it's definitely time for us to answer those questions. So we’ll go into Saturday in confident mood.

"We played ok in parts on Wednesday night and we could have come away with a win. So we won’t get too disappointed, we got that out of us in the 24 hours after the game and then we started to prepare for another tough game at Loftus Road.

"We’ll go there and we’ll try to win. That’s the best way for us, to get our attacking players on the ball - because when they click we all know they have the talent to do some really good things.

"So I think we’ll go to QPR in real high spirits and knowing we can win the game.

"Just because you lose one game doesn’t mean you’re a bad team. It’s about everybody trying to hit their high levels on Saturday, trying to score goals and keep clean sheets."
