Uwe on battling performance, red card and Oliver debut

3 February 2018

Uwe Rosler has spoken to the media following Saturday’s 3-2 loss to Scunthorpe United.

Here are the main talking points from his interview…

On the game against Scunthorpe...

“It was a very good start to the game for us and I think we had seven corners which shows the momentum was on our side early on.

“Everything went to plan, but it was the red card that killed us.

“After the first goal went in, we needed to have more time to recover from that but the red card killed us like I said.”

On the spirit his players showed…

“In the second half we showed spirit. We worked hard on the shape and tried to get them on the counter attack a few times.

“From that momentum, we then went on to get our equaliser.

“We waited for our chance and tried to play the counter attack.

“My players never gave up and they were really disciplined, but that isn’t one of our strengths as a group.

“I am very encouraged to see the spirit that my player’s showed.”

On the red card…

“It was definitely hand ball and I’m not complaining about that.

“He was one metre away and Ash [Eastham] couldn’t move out of the way.

“With being down to ten, we had to wait for our chances, but it wasn’t to be.”

On Charlie Oliver’s debut…

I thought he did well and he has just been fast tracked into our football club.

“He came onto the pitch today, but I have to say he did really well.

“To cope with the physicality that Scunthorpe showed, I am happy with his performance."
