Pearson - We Defeated Ourselves

Manager Nigel Pearson was left bitterly disappointed with last night's two one away defeat to Sheffield Wednesday, because in his eyes we beat ourselves.

Speaking to following the game Pearson was pleased to see us remain in top spot based on goal difference now and not points, and he said he wasn't going to get carried away with the defeat despite it coming as a shock because he knows we are capable of bouncing back again and that's where his focus will be ahead of the next game, but that didn't mean he wasn't annoyed come the full time whistle.

'The performance was not of the standard we've produced during the vast majority of the season. We can't have many nights like that with our aspirations but you've got to keep things in perspective. We're still in a good position and our performance levels have been good.'

Pearson goes on to say that he doesn't like singling out players for criticism following errors or when they don't live up to their own standards because it is a team game and overall we have been very good and quite consistent this season, so there will be no blame game, we'll just accept the disappointment and do our best not to feel this way come the end of the next game.

'Really we beat ourselves. We conceded two poor goals after a good start and didn't work hard enough in the first half. We didn't manage the ball well enough - we've passed around sides that are fitter than they are.'

Pearson adds that the effort was there is the second half and he can't fault the players for how they went at it in the final 45 minutes but unfortunately our quality wasn't right, especially when it came to the chances we had to get back into the match, but again the gaffer tries to look at it as one of those bad days at the office.

We have done well and we will have hiccups, let's just hope we don't have too many more of those and that we get back to winning ways at the next time of asking.
