Banide Frustrated With Giving The Lead Away Again

18 September 2019

Latics picked up another point on the road after a 2-2 draw with Scunthorpe United on Tuesday night and Laurent Banide gave his assessment of the game.

The Head Coach admits that he’s annoyed with his side for throwing away another two-goal lead in the space of a few days.

"It's amazing because it was the exact same game as the Grimsby Town match at the weekend, we lost control at 2-0.

“I'm very angry because we played well and it's important to finish the game well, we cannot stop playing at 2-0 so I am very angry, but we must prepare for the next game on Saturday."

Banide believes that he needs to find a way to sort the players’ mentality at the end of the game.

"It's very frustrating because we lost control after 2-0 and we need to continue as the game is not finished, I don't understand.

“So, I think it's the mentality with the players and we need to find a solution because we cannot score every time.” He commented.

“We could have maybe lost the game at the end because we gave opportunities to the opponent and opened the door.

“So, it's amazing and I'm very frustrated but it's football and we need to continue and give confidence, and we need to find a solution on how to finish a game."

The 51-year-old claims that his side must learn from their mistakes because they’re making each game more complicated for themselves.

"There was nothing, nobody talked, and everybody is a coward because every time we have the bread in the hand we don't eat it, so it's amazing.

“It's football and we must accept we missed something, and we need the mentality to continue to play and we need to score more goals.

“But all we can do is work and find a solution to continue and maybe score more goals because every time we scored two goals we have to make it complicated."

Banide did take a few positives from the game and claims his side played well for the majority of the game.

"I thought that we played well and found a great connection and created opportunities, but we only played for 70 minutes and after their second goal we stopped playing, it's not normal."

Chris Eagles returned to the starting XI and Banide was pleased with the midfielder’s performance.

"He's a good player and he gives good experience and played a great ball for Christopher Missilou's goal and I am happy when he plays, and we need to continue with him for the next game."
