Hill: Burnley Is Another Opportunity

26 November 2012

Reds boss on Burnley test

“With respect to performances, I’m reasonably happy,” said Hill. “The result on Saturday was marginal.

Reds Manager Keith Hill caught up with the press ahead of tomorrow's home clash with Burnley.

“At the weekend, set-plays – corner kicks – let us down.

“I’m led to believe we’re more than capable of getting points, but we’re not getting points."

Hill has the same squad to choose from and might be tempted to start with Hungarian international Akos Buzsaky after the midfielder impressed when he sprang from the bench on Satuday.

“Everybody’s pushing," he added. "I thought Jonathan Greening was superb with the way he applied himself. Akos is a technician and Emile needs space – it was a difficult situation for him because when he came on Cardiff were camped in. I also thought Reuben was excellent when he came on.

“By and large I’m reasonably happy. We’ve got to convert our opportunities as well as how we have to defend set-plays. We made more than enough against the top-of-the-league side but we need to convert those chances.

“It’s about rediscovering confidence and self-belief.

“We’ve 84 points to play for. Mathematically we could still get promoted. Some of the decisions and mistakes we’ve made are because of the individual.

“It’s football. It’s another opportunity. Everybody seems to get another opportunity in football. We get another opportunity against Burnley. We are a little bit susceptible at this moment in time. I can’t ask for any more except for decision-making from the players.”
