Neil Lennon - Express ourselves at Macron Stadium

Manager seeking return to winning ways ahead of upcoming home games

Neil Lennon has called for his players to express themselves ahead of a Macron Stadium double header against Brighton and Reading.

Last time out at Macron Stadium, Wanderers suffered their first home defeat in ten in the league, with Watford running out eventual 4-3 winners.

Since then, away defeats at Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough have followed, with the manager now hopeful a couple of positive performances on home soil can help remedy recent disappointments.

“It may well be a case of us trying to knock the door down,” Lennon said, when previewing the upcoming games against Brighton and Reading. “We may have to be patient over the two games, but I want us to get back to playing with freedom.

“We’ve shown it before, particularly during our recent home games. 

“I think ever since we came through the door we’ve looked comfortable at home. We’ve looked strong, and the Watford game was our first home league defeat since October. 

“That shows you how consistent we’ve been at home. The attacking performance against Watford was arguably as good as we’ve been.

“Yes, recent results have gone against us recently, but I’ve not seen too much to suggest that confidence is low. We know we must get back to winning ways soon.

“We can only concentrate on what we’re trying to do. If we do that, then I’m sure we’ll be fine and soon find ourselves on another run.”
