INTERVIEW: Tyler Walker Watford Reaction

The striker scored his first league goal...

8 November 2020

Tyler Walker gave an honest reflection on how the Sky Blues can use the international break after defeat to Watford yesterday afternoon.

At Vicarage Road, the Sky Blues went ahead in the 64th minute through Walker to make the score 2-1 after two goals in quick succession. The hosts were able to fightback by taking the win late on after an Ismaila Sarr penalty.

Walker said: “It is obviously not great and we have got to dust ourselves down, we have got the international break now to get over this set of games and go into the next set of twelve games and to have a good go, we can’t dwell too much on what has gone on.

“We know it’s not been good enough and we can’t concede two or three goals a game and expect to come away with much.

“We know what we have got to do and we defend as a team from the strikers and we are not blaming anyone, we know it’s not good enough throughout the whole team. We have got two weeks to work on it and improve.”

He states they can be pleased by their efforts which saw them go toe to toe with a side who were only last season playing Premier League football and currently occupy 2nd in the league.

“We can take the positives as we are playing well but it is not enough, we have to look over the last few games and analyse, improve on areas we need to improve upon and hopefully results will come.

“It’s hard to think about a goal. I’m pleased to score as that’s my job but at the end of the day I would much rather come away with three points.

“Goals change games, we scored and all our emotions are high, to concede it takes the wind out of the sails. We have just got to manage the game in critical moments and make sure we do better. “

He also commented on how he is enjoying life with the Sky Blues and is looking to help the team head in the right direction.

“I have really enjoyed it, it’s a really good club and sometimes you have to have patience, I was really glad to get the start today, hopefully that can continue and I can help the team whilst moving forward.

“I thought we did really well today in large spells, we need to make sure in the important moments in the game we stand up and are there to be counted.”
