jan's not completely happy
After Saturday's opening day win over Scunthorpe you would expect Jan Molby to arrive at the office in a good mood this morning, but no!
He wasn't in a bad mood, just could have been better.
He say's that the team could, and are capable of, playing better than their performance showed in the 1-0 win.
Andy Ducros 61st minute match winning free kick that sealed it for the Reds had been rehearsed all week in an effort to shake off the habit of giving away goals from set pieces.
"We practiced free-kicks at the end of last week and, to be honest, it was the only way I could see us scoring.
It appeared to take a deflection but Iíll happily accept that piece of good fortune!"
"We also need to be sharper and play better but I know we can do that.
For the first half-hour, we were very nervous and didn't put a foot on the ball and pass like I know we can.
The things we are good at, like passing the ball around defence and getting the full-backs involved, we didn't really see but at least after the first half-hour we became competitive.
The midfield two of Mark Blake and Ben Davies started to put a foot in. We won a few challenges and from then on it was an even game."
Jan is now looking for some match practise for Ian Foster and Drewe Broughton after this Wednesdays reserve game against Scarborough had been cancelled by the Conference club.
Fozzie only played for 15 minutes on Saturday and Broughton has not played since
the friendly against Halesowen Town back on July 16th.
Although he was under a one match ban last Saturday he would not have played anyway because he picked up a hamstring strain in training just before the start of the season.
"We are looking to arrange a friendly because lads like Fozzie and Drewe need matches now.
We will try and get a game for them but it needs to be by Wednesday because we will need to involve players who will be on the bench this Saturday."
Adie Smith will also miss some training this week after playing on Saturday with a bruised foot.
