Banide Disappointed To Lose In The Carabao Cup

14 August 2019

Latics were knocked out of the Carabao Cup last night in dramatic fashion against Blackburn Rovers and Head Coach Laurent Banide gave his thoughts on the game.

Banide was left frustrated with the last ten minutes of the game against the Championship side, who scored two goals in stoppage time to come from behind and secure their place in the next round.

“It’s difficult, but it’s football and we must accept it. We didn’t play well in the last ten minutes and we conceded two goals and against a big team, we paid the price.

“Our level is not enough at the moment and I’m very sad for the supporters because they have been with us and we must fight until the end to get a result.”

Banide admitted he was disappointed with the result in the Carabao Cup game and he believes that his side needs to find a way to start winning matches soon.

“We lost and we need to win games and we need to find a solution because we must win, so I’m very disappointed.”

The Frenchman is now focused on the game against Bradford City at the weekend in the league.

“We must prepare for the game on Saturday. We saw a good first-half against Blackburn Rovers but the second-half wasn’t good enough.

“We need to have more concentration and we must work to do our best, but we didn’t for the last ten minutes.”
