Stendel: "We stopped our game second half.”

3 October 2018

Daniel Stendel discussed the 1-1 draw with Plymouth Argyle at Oakwell, after the match had finished.

The Reds’ Head Coach was a frustrated figure after seeing his side surrender an early lead, to draw with bottom of the league Plymouth. 

“We started very well, but I think the goal came too early for my squad, we stopped our game second half.” Explained Stendel. “When you play well in the first half, it’s not always certain that you will win the game unless you carry on in to the second half.” 

Stendel’s Assistant, Andreas Winkler and Captain, Adam Davies, had both warned before the match that Plymouth were in a false position and could cause problems on the night. They cut through the Reds’ defence on a couple of occasions to show they were a threat.

“I hope the players understand what they want from the season,” stated Stendel. “We can win any game but we need 100% attitude. We played well against Fleetwood, and we started well tonight, but after we scored the players thought we would easily win the game. A football game is 90 minutes, and anything can happen. We lost concentration after the one nil and we weren’t winning the second ball.”

Next up for the Reds is Saturday’s trip to high-flying Peterborough. The Reds will be backed by a sell-out away end in Cambridgeshire, another superb following to add to the many that have already trekked across the country so far this season.

“The next game is a difficult game against a very tough opposition. In all the games we have good support from our fans, they come tonight on a Tuesday night and so I can understand why they can go home frustrated.”
