Lossl: We must turn pos­i­tives into points

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

KEEPER Jonas Lossl says Town have to start turn­ing per­for­mances into points as they go to Arse­nal look­ing to avoid a third straight Premier League de­feat to­mor­row.

De­spite de­feats to Brighton and Bournemouth in the last two matches, Town re­main out of the rel­e­ga­tion zone by one point, after pre­vi­ously climb­ing to 14th on the back of seven points from nine.

Dan­ish stop­per Lossl, how­ever, says the squad are frus­trated by re­cent events and are keen to upset the odds at Arse­nal, where Town haven’t won since a pint of beer cost around 3p in Novem­ber 1954.

“I am pos­i­tive about how we play, but we have to get re­sults,” said the 29-year-old. “We play well, like against Bournemouth, but that is not enough.

“We need to look in the mir­ror and change it.

“There were pos­i­tives, but that has kind of been the story of the sea­son.”

Lossl be­lieves Town caused their own prob­lems at Bournemouth, where Cal­lum Wil­son and Ryan Fraser were gifted goals be­fore Ter­ence Kon­golo re­sponded with his first com­pet­i­tive goal for the club.

“We have per­formed well in matches a few times and not got the points, but we caused our own prob­lems against Bournemouth and con­ceded two sloppy goals,” ex­plained Lossl.

“After Brighton, we spoke about the fault maybe lay­ing some­where else, but Bournemouth was our own F A Pts 45 7 41 30 6 39 28 16 33 31 13 31 34 20 31 21 17 23 25 22 23 24 25 23 21 18 22 19 21 21 18 21 20 15 18 19 20 23 18 12 20 13 11 20 12 14 30 11

“The dress­ing room was low af­ter­wards. We will change it. We have a good team and we have shown that we can play well.

“But if we looked at our­selves in the mir­ror, we have to feel dis­ap­pointed (at Bournemouth) not to get any­thing be­cause we played well.

“We must keep play­ing in this way but be bet­ter in key ar­eas.

“I can­not stand here and say we are a bet­ter team after we have just lost a match that we should have won.

“We played very well in our last match against Arse­nal on the fi­nal day of last sea­son.

“We will go in this time with our game plan and do what­ever is re­quired to give our­selves a chance of get­ting a re­sult.”
