Plenty Of Positives For Pearson

Plenty Of Positives For Pearson

Manager Nigel Pearson has said that he and the players can take plenty of positives from yesterday's two nil loss to Chelsea.

With Pearson speaking ahead of the game and saying that we wouldn't be 'parking the bus' in our trip to Stamford Bridge, that certainly proved to be true and we put in a cracking performance that arguably we should've got more from - at the very least a one nil defeat would've felt fairer even if you accept Chelsea deserved victory with the chances they had.

Speaking to Sky Sports following the game our gaffer explained.

'It's disappointed for us. I think we played really good football. Key moments didn't quite go the way we would have liked, but there are a lot of positives to take from the performance.'

Pearson goes on to say the one thing we must improve on though is our finishing, saying that 'we' are aware that when chances are coming our way, it's not happening for us yet and we need to be far more ruthless and make them count - but equally within that, two games into the season, there is the positive that we are carving out good opportunities and Pearson admits that is encouraging as the more we create, hopefully in time, they will start going in.

'I think we have put them under quite a bit of pressure and even when they started to take a bit of control in the second half, we still had our moments. There are positives, certainly.'

One disappointing element of the game was the potential injury to midfielder Dean Hammond given his form and worth to us so far this season. Pearson described it as a key moment in the game, saying he and Andy King had been exceptional, but when Hammond went off our 'game management' wasn't as 'efficient' and we didn't keep our shape as strongly as we had done previously, but explaining that it was 'severe cramp' which hit him, he hopes he'll be fine in time for our next fixture.
