Welsh: We Are Embarrassed

29 December 2012

PNE.Com speaks to John Welsh following the final game of 2012 at home to Doncaster.

“The players today let not only the fans but themselves down. We let everybody down today and all I can do on behalf of everybody is apologise for the performance and hopefully we will put things right on Tuesday night.”

“The fans will always get behind the team, we have a great set of supporters and they always get behind the lads no matter what score it is or how we are playing. 

“If you approach games like we did today you are not going to win much. We will put things right for Tuesday and look to win the game.

“We need to win; a draw isn’t good enough we need to start winning football matches. We will go through everything on Monday and see where we went wrong which will take a lot to evaluate. 

“We really need to win, we need to take a look at ourselves, evaluate things and get our heads right for what is a massive game on Tuesday. 

“The last message to come out of the dressing room was to respond at Hartlepool on Tuesday afternoon. It is a massive game, we have put pressure on ourselves to go there and get a win.

“It was summed up in the first 30 seconds with the first goal and it got worse from there. We all showed a lack of desire to win the game and each man in the dressing room after the game was embarrassed.

Welsh said: “We are embarrassed; it is not a performance any team would want to give, the fans deserved more today. 

The Lilywhites number 19 told the Club’s official website that the North End squad are ‘embarrassed’ and they have let the supporters and the Club down.
