Despite dominating possession and forcing our opponents back towards their own goal for much of the 90 minutes, we fired another blank in the Premier League on Sunday at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
We’ve scored just two goals in the past seven league games, and Rob Holding believes the team need to find a bit of luck in order to turn our fortunes round.
“We're going through a bit of a phase where luck isn't really on our side,” the defender said after the game.
“We maybe just need one to deflect off someone and trickle into the net to give the forwards the confidence again to score some goals. It's frustrating watching from the back when we're pushing up and trying to get as many chances as we can and we just need a bit of luck.
“We had so many chances second half and we just couldn't put the ball in the net. It's been a problem for a few games now.”
Holding added that as long as the team stay together, our fortunes will soon improve.
“We stayed together and kept pushing right to the final whistle. We got men in the box and we just need to stick together and not let anyone pull us apart. We need to keep going and hopefully, things will change for us.”
