We took that into a midweek friendly in Ireland and were hoping to bounce back, even though the team changed around a bit. It was certainly a poor performance and poor result again.
We now look for a response from the players. With the work that we do and the volume of work we do you are always taking into account what is needed and the amount of work done already.
It is about going into our next game against Liverpool, the players realise that it is a game we've got to win. We are at home, we've let it slip of late and we've got to get back on track.
Our run of games lately have been a little bit fragmented, but it is something that we have to adjust to. It's like the games these days that are not played on a Saturday. Lots of Sunday games and the Bolton game on a Monday - it is something that we've got to adapt to.
I watched the Worthington Cup final where Liverpool scored an excellent victory over Manchester United. I think you are always impressed by Liverpool, they are a good side.
They have obviously had a difficult period over the last couple of months - then they go and win the Worthington Cup! On their day they are not far from being the best.
We know the quality they have up front with Owen, Heskey and Baros - they are a formidable side. But we are playing at home and we know we are capable of putting in a performance. It is a case of making sure we do.
It is really just about us, this will hopefully be a perfect game for us to bounce back. We are looking for the team and our work ethic to get a result for us.
It was a very disappointing time for us last week. Our week and our work all revolves around results and the result at West Ham was a poor one - result and performance.
