💪 "Let's get this"

Royals skipper on how efforts are being thrown into ironing out the issues which punished us in the second half on Saturday...

23 November 2020

The focus is on fixing what went wrong...quickly.

"Obviously we very disappointed," captain Liam Moore said. "We came to Bournemouth with a gameplan, it worked first half but we went away from it in the second half and we were pinished.

"Saturday will hurt. We've conceded too many goals in the last four games and ni the second half there were a few lapses in concentration, bits we have worked on in training that we could have avoided definitely.

"In the first half, it was almost the perfect away performance. Resolute in defence, we attacked well   and everything we worked on we put into practice.

"But it's a ninety minute game, and the second half was very disappointing. 

"This is a long season though. We have to iron out those bits fast, go back to our structure, go back to keeping clean sheets and being hard to beat. There is plenty to work on.

"But we need to bounce back very quickly. This is about putting this right as fast as possible.

"We've came back in on Sunday and started to iron out the flaws so we can come back strong on Wednesday.

"Deep down I'm gutted about Saturday. But I've got to be one of the mature ones, the senior pros, who tries to stay level-headed throughout.

"It's clearly disappointing, but it's about fixing it now. We've got to stay positive and we've got to stay real.

"We'll work extremely hard, help everyone through this and let's aim to come out the other side when we go to Millwall on Wednesday night.

"There are loads of games coming up and our full focus goes to Wednesday night. It's always a very tough game at Millwall - but let's get things right, get three points and keep looking forward."
