Di Canio - Cut Out The Mistakes

17 September 2012

TOWN manager Paolo Di Canio believes that Town need to work harder to eliminate the kind of mistakes they made at Carlisle on Saturday.

Speaking at Monday's press call, the manager reflected on the point at Brunton Park with goals from Adam Rooney and Paul Benson securing the draw.

He said: "After the Leyton Orient game I was happy with the way we train and the way we answer obviously we still make individual mistakes but that is a part of the game. It depends on me and the players to work harder to reduce the chance that we make a silly mistake in some area of the field. On Saturday, once again it happened and we were punished.


"It’s obvious that it’s a different league, a different level and we have to work harder to not make mistakes. I can’t say nothing about the commitment because Saturday we saw straight away that it was a different atmosphere and that came from the way we worked so hard during the week.


"I wasn’t happy even if the draw was good to stop three defeats in a row but this is not my way. The way we played proved that we can play this football. It’s a shame that we came out with only one point - we did very well and I saw my football in some moments."

After assessing Saturday's showing, the manager declared he was looking forward to facing Portsmouth tomorrow evening. 


He said: "I’m happy to go there with my team because the players like to play in this kind of stadium that has a big reputation. They played at the top level - a few years ago they won the FA Cup under Harry Redknapp and just last year they were in the Championship but these financial problems can cause damage to any club in the world. Unfortunately it happened to Portsmouth."
