Webster: We're gutted

Adam Webster was left bitterly disappointed after a late 2-1 defeat to Aston Villa and felt the side deserved at least something out of the game following a courageous performance at Villa Park yesterday.

Webster broke the deadlock to score his first-ever Premier League goal with 21 minutes played, before Jack Grealish’s equaliser and Matt Targett’s stoppage-time strike gave the hosts all three points.

He said, “It’s completely gutting to concede so late. We played with ten for the majority of the game and we dug in at times and still played very well, but to concede so late on is heart-breaking.

“We spoke at half-time about being brave again going into the second half, as they got a leg up after we went down to ten men.

“We still came out and played our game in the second half, and caused them a lot of problems, but it’s gutting for us not to come away with anything.”

The 24-year-old praised the overall work rate of the side, but stressed the need to be more clinical at both ends of the pitch to pick up more results.

“The boys put in such a great shift and we’re all working together. We’re proud of the performance, but the result is disappointing and it’s a tough one to take.

“It’s all about being clinical in both boxes, which is a huge part of the game. If we get chances, then we’ve got to take them. At the other end, we’ve got to keep them out.”
