Town’s Head Coach comments on game at Ashton Gate

- Danny Schofield reviews 2-0 reversal against Bristol City
- Head Coach: “games always come down to key moments”
- Schofield believes that the wins will come

Head Coach Danny Schofield was left ruing some big chances missed in Wednesday evening’s 2-0 Sky Bet Championship defeat at Bristol City.

“I thought it was a very even game. I thought there were equal amounts of possession and chances, but Bristol City converted their chances, and we lost the game. I’m a bit disappointed and frustrated,” he explained post-match.

“We’re creating chances, but also conceding chances and conceding goals. To have that big opportunity (when Pat Jones hit the post) and then immediately concede was a big blow. The game then becomes a big challenge, and we must throw caution to the wind by bringing all our attacking players onto the pitch.

“My initial thoughts are that the performance was good, but games always come down to key moments and Bristol City were more clinical with their chances. I thought there were chances created and good football played in terms of how we broke their lines and moved in behind.

“The disappointment with both goals is that we were in possession of the ball. After turning it over, a direct ball in behind our defensive line caused us problems and we conceded. That the direct ball caused a problem is a bit frustrating.”

Danny knows that the results must come for the Terriers and is looking for his side to start that on Sunday against Blackpool.

He continued: “The players have given everything on the pitch in every single game; there’s no lack of effort or application, which is non-negotiable. We need to make sure we turn all that effort, and the decent performances, into wins.

“The Championship is a very demanding league. The games are coming thick and fast, and we know we need to use our squad to its maximum this season.

“We will try and take the positives. It’s very difficult after a defeat and with the form we’re in, but we need to find solutions on how we improve moving forward to win football games.

“I believe eventually the tide will turn.

“We’ve got four massive games before the international break, and we know how pivotal those games will be for us. That begins with Blackpool at home on Sunday.”
