Iversen Knows There Is More To Come From The Team

12 August 2018

Goalkeeper Daniel Iversen believes there is much more to come from the team after yesterday’s draw against Forest Green Rovers.

The Dane pulled off a number of key saves that enabled Latics to come away from the New Lawn with a point after going behind in the first half.

Despite a spirited second half performance, the 21-year-old on loan from Leicester City knows that the team can do better.

“We can do more especially from what I've seen on the training pitch,” he said.

“It was a hard game for us, they pressed us really hard first half and also in the second half and I think we weren't so good in the first half, we were sloppy on the ball, our passing, our defending was too deep so the first half wasn't so good but the second half we got a little bit better.”

Latics were without several key players through injury, but a back five with an average age of just 20-years-old stood up to a tough test.

“We're a young team especially the back four,” Iversen commented.

“I think we're doing really well which we showed last week also, I just think we need more communication and we need to get further up the pitch, but we are a young team, so we have to learn.”

His performance during yesterday’s match earned him praise from manager Frankie Bunn as well as the iFollow Latics Man of the Match award.

However, speaking after the game he played down his role in the match.

“I just need to do my job for the team just as striker has a job of scoring goals. I'm the goalkeeper and I need to make these saves and stop the ball going in the goal.”
