HASSELBAINK LOOKS FOR IMPROVED PERFORMANCE AGAINST LINCOLN

20 September 2021

JIMMY Floyd Hasselbaink says that the Brewers will stay calm and look for an improved performance against Lincoln.

The manager admitted to being disappointed with the result and performance at Crewe on Saturday as the Brewers lost 2-0.

He said: “But we stay calm and we don’t panic. We will assess what went wrong and address it and make sure we are right for Saturday.

“I’m upset as I don’t like losing and at Crewe we lost significantly on all fronts.

“I will watch this game back and then we will look at Lincoln and what we want to do. We have two home games coming up but I’m only looking at one first and how we can attack Lincoln. It’s another difficult one but they are all difficult.”

Hasselbaink says that he expects more from his team.

“We needed to be a lot better at closing down and being more compact on Saturday. We started well in the second half, we played better than the first half but then the red card came and made it very difficult for us.”

The Brewers revival under Hasselbaink last season was built on the impressive away form but defeats at Cambridge and Crewe have set Albion back this term.

Hasselbaink said: “I have no answer for that at the moment. We have three goals against at Cambridge and two on Saturday at Crewe and normally we are a side that doesn’t have many goals against.

“At Cambridge they were freaky goals but still goals. At Crewe the first goal was a deflection but we still conceded two. That’s not us.”
