Adrian looks for just deserts

AdriansaveHeroic Adrian was in incredible form against Leicester City  but it wasn’t enough and now he’s looking for the team to bounce back on Saturday.

He’s become one of the best shot stoppers in the country but simply couldn’t stop the 116th minute headed winner from Foxes’ captain Andy King.

Speaking to www.whufc.com he said: “It’s my job, unfortunately they scored the header late on which I don’t like, I saved a lot of shots but we still got nothing.

“We played well and tried to keep possession. It’s not easy coming here to play Leicester but I thought we did well to create the chances that we did.”

Looking ahead he said: “This is football, anything can happen in extra-time. We need to pick ourselves up quickly for our game against Norwich this weekend.

“I am confident in my ability to save penalties so had it come to that I think we would have won, but it didn’t get that far so it doesn’t matter.”

“We’ve had some excellent performances away from home this season so hopefully we can recreate that form at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday. “It’s a game we are all looking forward to and we will try our best to win.”

  1. Don’t beat your self up about it we should have beat them to the ball in the air,we just brought Reia on and with Ginge,Tomkins Kouyate on the pitch he should never got a clean head on the ball,
    The Ref had already taken the game from us with some very strange decisions,
    But the League was made are main object when we chose to put out weak teams in Europe
    We can still have a cup run,

  2. It’s always a pity to go out of the League Cup so early, as I often think that it might be the one we have the best chance of winning. However, c’est la vie. It means less opportunities for those not in the starting XI, but they’ll be fresh and hungry when the call does go out for them. Hopefully, it’ll also be a spur for the team to crack on in the League – sort of a “right, we’ll get into Europe the hard way through our league position” attitude.
