Washington: We need to get better

12th August 2019

Conor Washington admitted he and his teammates need to improve on their performance after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Ross County.

“I don’t think we got the shape right today as a group of players that the manager wanted," the 27-year-old said. "I thought we really poor second half today.

"There were a lot of words said afterwards that needed to be said.”

The Jambos were left disappointed after the home draw against their Highland opposition - who missed a late penalty to snatch all three points.

“Second half, I thought they outplayed us and dominated us at our own ground which is really disappointing. I felt like I was feeding off scraps the entire second half.”

“The players need to get better as a group and stick together and communicate more. We can’t let the crowd’s frustrations get to us. It’s the whole team, we need to help each other out. It’s such a basic thing but we didn’t do it enough.”

“The fans and ourselves believe we should be winning this game, they shouldn’t be coming here and dominating us. We should be dominating and winning games with our players.”

“The crowds don’t affect me, they weren’t too bad today, I thought they were right in the reaction they gave us to be honest.”
