TEAM NEWS

Tyrone Mings is suspended so King Kortney steps in whilst talisman Ollie Watkins misses the first game of 2022 as Bertrand Traorรฉ makes his first start of the season.

With Axel Tuanzebe no longer with the club and Keinan Davis out on loan there is a youthful look to the bench with five Under-23 players represented including a squad debut for the highly rated 16 year old centre back Josh Feeney.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was a really good first half. They had one chance in the first half, two in the second half. Weโ€™ve gifted them three chances and went on to lose the game. โ€œFrom what Iโ€™ve seen we were much the better team. We were the only team looking to play and create stuff, and we did create stuff. We conceded two poor goals, so itโ€™s no surprise that weโ€™re disappointed. โ€œWe showed a lot of grit in the opening games. The second goal is a catalogue of errors. Thereโ€™s no grit, no fight, no one showing the right aggression. It was too easy scoring against us today. Weโ€™ve conceded three chances and let in two goals. โ€œWe canโ€™t use [injuries and Covid] as an excuse. Itโ€™s on all of us to cope and survive. We should have picked up something from the game, thatโ€™s what weโ€™re disappointed with. โ€œThis league is brutal at the best of times. Itโ€™s going to be an opportunity for players to step up, but Iโ€™m not sure there were any positives today. Iโ€™m sick of saying it was a good performance [after a defeat].โ€ Steven Gerrard.
