Preston North End’s Callum Robinson has told the club website that there was a lot to build on from today’s performance despite losing 1-0 to Swansea City.
The Lilywhites got off to a good start last week when they beat QPR 1-0 and were hoping to continue that form today with their match against Swansea. At first luck seemed to be with Preston as Declan Rudd was able to save Oliver McBurnie’s penalty. However Preston would end up losing when Joe Asoro put in a cross for Jay Fulton who was able to score.
Obviously it was a disappointing result for Robinson as co as they weren’t able to follow up last week with another win. But even though they lost the game, Robinson said there was a lot to like about their performance, particularly in the second half where they did come close to equalising and getting a point out of the game.
He said: “We’re gutted, we gave it our all and obviously that wasn’t enough, but I think we created enough chances, you’ve just got to put those away,”
“I think if we had got the one, we would’ve gone onto win the game. We penned them in for most of the second half and we knew we could’ve played better in the first half, but it’s one of those [days]. It’s a gutting feeling but we’ve just got to keep things moving.”
“I think we just needed to believe in ourselves a little bit more and be a bit more confident on the ball [in the first half]. We knew we were miles better and that’s what we showed second half. If one goes in, we would’ve possibly go on to win the game.”
“It’s one of those games where it’s annoying but we’ve just got to stick together. It’s still the second game in and we’re still getting used to a few of the new lads as well, so hopefully it will work out together.”
