Arnaud's frustration

26th September 2016

We must put away our chances, insists Arnaud.

Arnaud Djoum expressed his frustration at Hearts’ failure to put Ross County to the sword on Saturday and believes his side must be more clinical in front of goal.

The Jambos were held to a 0-0 draw by the Staggies in Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership showdown at Tynecastle, much to the frustration of Hearts’ Belgian midfielder.

Speaking to the media post-match, Arnaud expressed his disappointment at having only picked up one point from the last two games.

“The last two games we’ve had the same problem. We’re creating a lot of chances but we’re unable to score. It’s really frustrating,” said Arnaud.

“We’re working hard and playing well but of course it’s about scoring. If we add goals then everything will be fine of course, but it’s really frustrating because we should have had six points from our last two games.

“Instead we have just one point from two games, which is hard to take for us.

“We have to keep working hard and really concentrate on our finishing in training.

“We still have a lot of confidence and we have good strikers here, but it’s not just up to them to score. We all have to be focused on trying to score.

“When I see this team we have a lot of quality. Look at our bench today, Souttar came off and Ozturk came on.

“So we have the quality here and it’s about adding goals now.”
