Nketiah already itching to put things right

Following our 1-0 loss against Everton, Eddie Nketiah is adamant that we will respond with a much more positive outcome against Brentford next week.

On a frustrating afternoon for all connected with the club, we fell to just our second league defeat of the campaign and our first since September as James Tarkowski netted what proved to be the winner on the hour mark.

We squandered some great opportunities before and after that decisive moment, and that left our striker believing that it was just one of those days where nothing quite clicked.

“It was a difficult game,” he assessed. “They made it very tough. Personally, we weren’t at the standard we needed to be at today and we’ve got to improve and make sure we bounce back in our next game.


“Credit to them, they put out a good gameplan and executed it well today. I felt like we just didn’t execute ours to the best of our ability, we were a bit sloppy at times. 

“These games happen, it’s a long season and everything’s not always going to go your way and we know that.”

Eddie was also full of praise for our travelling supporters, who made it up to the north-west for the second week in a row despite transport difficulties and an awkward kick-off time.

He feels that they will be repaid in the coming weeks as he feels we’re more than equipped to put things right at home against the Bees in seven days’ time, which is followed by our crunch top-of-the-table clash against Manchester City.


“Everyone’s disappointed of course,” he admitted. “We want to win every game, especially for the travelling fans who came to support us. We wanted to give them all three points but unfortunately, we couldn’t do that. 

“I think their support all year has been excellent. It’s not an easy place to come to and travel up here so we’re grateful for them. Hopefully we can reward them with three points on Saturday.

“Not everything is going to go your way, especially when you’re pushing and trying to achieve great things so the togetherness we’ve got here alongside the fans’ support, we’re going to bounce back. I know we’re going to get a good result on the weekend.”
