NO PANIC FOR BREWERS AFTER CUP DEFEAT

9 November 2015

BREWERS manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says that there is no sense of panic at the Pirelli Stadium after the 3-0 FA Cup defeat to Peterborough.

The Gaffer says: "Anyone who sees us week in week out knows that was not us. We are tight, competitive, we play good football, we put people under pressure and we don't give chances away. We gave far too many chances away against Peterborough."

The Brewers were without a string of key players including Robbie Weir, Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and Tom Naylor and although the Gaffer refused to use that as an excuse, he admits that it may have been a factor in the defeat.

"We had to shuffle, with new people playing in different positions and maybe it was too many changes at once. Our full backs did the job I asked them to do but the rest as a collective were not good  enough.

"But there is no need to panic. We will get people back. We have lost yes but we have time to reflect, work how we have always been working and put things right for the next match."
