Go the extra metres

12 April 2018

After the disappointment of the midweek trip to QPR, Jos Luhukay says the players know exactly where the improvements must be.

The Wednesday boss was critical over the manner in which the goals were conceded and has stressed the standards must rise as they travel to in-form Hull on Saturday.

The Tigers have won back to back games, 4-0 and 5-0 respectively, as Luhukay stressed the importance of more aggression and strong defensive organisation.

While the Dutchman plots a return to winning ways in the remaining games, he said:

“What we want is for the players to go that extra metre to win their one against ones.

“I am not happy with the goals we conceded on Tuesday, it happened too easy, we were too passive in our own dangerous areas.

“We were not consistent, not aggressive enough to clear our own area to stop the goals.

“The players know the problems and we know what needs to be done.

“It is important we start all the things well from the beginning on Saturday. We play against Hull who have made nine goals in the last two games.

“We have to go there and be 100% with our defending, be aggressive and work hard together. Then when our chances come, we must be highly effective with them.”

And as the end of the campaign comes into sharper focus, Luhukay added:

“The priority is finishing the season as strong as we can and getting results.

“But, yes, we are approaching the end of the season and I must have one eye on the next steps, planning for the new season and making decisions.”
