🗯️ "When you create opportunities, you have to take care of them. You have to score!"

Royals boss Veljko Paunovic reflects on missed opportunities that were punished by a sucker punch at Adams Park...

23 February 2021

A disappointing result at the end of a frustrating trip to Adams Park this evening - but Royals boss Veljko Paunovic is determined not to let disappointment override his team's determination to bounce back...immediately.

"We didn't get the result we wanted. But we can't change it now.

"All we can do is learn from it and improve. That is always our approach and it will be our approach again.

"We created good opportunities and we played some good football, but when you get your chances you have to take care of them. You have to score. 

"In the past we have done that very well, but we have to recover that level of performance. We have to be clinical in front of goal - that is crucial for us.

"Clean sheets and solid defence, playing good fooball on the ground, and when we create those opportunites we have to convert.

"Football is very emotional. We have guys crying in the changing room after the game because they are so disappointed. But we arent' going to let them do that. We don't have time to be disappointed. 

"We have 14 games left, 14 opportunities in front of us. And the best one is the very next game."
