It's tough for us all

3 October 2023

A change of formation, a change in personnel but unfortunately the same outcome for Wednesday - an eighth defeat of the campaign on Tuesday night at the Hawthorns.

An early John Swift goal on 13 minutes settled the clash in the midlands as the Owls’ winless run in the Championship continued.

The early breakthrough gave West Brom the perfect platform to march on and claim their second win in a week.

But for Xisco’s Owls, it’s a bleak picture after 10 games at the foot of the division with only two points on the board.

“I’m very disappointed,” Xisco said. “We tried to change the formation, change the players.

“I think the players gave 100%, we received the goal and after that we had chances but it was very, very difficult for us to score.

“The difference in the Championship is these details and when you have individual mistakes, you have this problem.


“The team gave 100% to the very last minutes even though we are with one player less because of injury to Akin.

“I understand the fans and I understand the disappointment.

“It is very difficult. One of the most important things in the Championship is trying to have clean sheets. In the last game we received goals through set pieces and today with one action, they have a striker in the box, we have three players but the first shot is a goal.

“We need to improve a lot of things to try to have a more consistent performance. It’s hard for me, it’s hard for the staff, the players, the fans – everybody.

“It’s tough and all we can do is stick together and work hard to try to change the situations and try to put positive things in place.

“I know how the players are working, how they feel the pressure, we try to give all the best for them but right now we are in a very tough moment.

“I can say I am so sorry for the fans, it is very hard for them and we need to continue working to change the situation.”
