We have to improve the quality

29 August 2023

Xisco has demanded more from his players in the final third following our Carabao Cup exit on penalties against Mansfield.

The Owls missed a host of chances, combined with an inspired display from goalkeeper Christy Pym.

And the manager said the players must sharpen their shooting boots to reverse a grim start to the new season:

“We have to improve, it is simple as that. Tonight we had 25 shots and Mansfield had three or four shots but the score is 1-1.

“When the game goes to penalties anyone can win and Mansfield won on this occasion.


“We created the chances but did not take them and this must change. We work hard in training for the games and as we saw against Cardiff on Saturday, we score the goal but did not get the second goal and we lose the game.”

Despite the slide, Xisco insists the whole camp will pick themselves up and dust themselves down in time for Saturday’s Championship trip to Leeds.

He added: “No matter how matter times you kick me, I will get up and come back and this will be the same for the players.

“This has been the way I am all my life.

“The good thing is that in football you get another chance very quickly and in four days’ time we have another chance.

“The players are giving me 100%, they are giving everything but we have to improve the quality.”
