MADS ANDERSEN ON BAGGIES CLASH

15 December 2021

The Danish defender helped preview Friday night's clash with West Bromwich Albion here at Oakwell.

ON RECENT FORM

“I think what we’ve shown in the last games is that we get the chances. But we need to be more clinical in both boxes. I think we can get the wins we need.

“The mistake for the goal last weekend was very frustrating, but it’s a learning experience, it won’t be happening again.

“Look, it’s not over, this season. It isn’t over until it’s over. We’ve seen that before. We still believe.”

CHANGING THE MENTALITY

“The start to the season was tough. And if you’re not getting out of there early on, the mindset is tough to get out of. You end up stuck in that frame of mind. 

“But we all know what we can do as players and as a team. We work hard in training, and we are looking to turn things around, to escape that mentality of losing.”

ON POYA ASBAGHI

“He’s very strong on communication. He is very clever, very intelligent. He sees everything, and we all know as players what he is wanting from us. 

“It’s not always the case for a player, that he understands his role. But with the new gaffer, we are all aware of what we need to do. But it’s a new style so it takes some time to get used to that.

“We are in a transitional period, but in the coming games it needs to go together with results.”

WEST BROM & VALÉRIEN ISMAËL

“It would mean a lot to win this game, to go into Christmas with a big three points against a very good team. 

“I have a lot of respect for our old gaffer, I learned a lot as a player and a person and enjoyed our three quarters of a season together. 

“But this is football. Things move on quickly. 

“We know what they’re all about. High-pressing, set pieces, throw ins. I’m looking forward to taking them on.”
