Lossl: We must turn positives into points
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.”
