Harry Kewell expects the right response from Reds to Saturday’s setback at Wycombe when we return to the Checkatrade tonight to face high-flying Exeter City (7.45pm).
Paul Tisdale’s men come to West Sussex fourth in the Sky Bet League 2 table despite Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Chesterfield.
With so little separating the sides at both ends of the table, HK says it was imperative that Reds put the 4-0 defeat at Adams Park behind them quickly, and produce a positive performance in front of the home fans.
“It’s a big game – as they all are – but even more so perhaps bearing in mind how Saturday ended,” said the Head Coach.
“Looking back at the game there was quite a lot which pleased me, particularly in the first half.
“The things that didn’t do so well we’ve worked on in the last 48 hours. Exeter will be a good test for us. They have got some real quality and obviously a manager (Paul Tisdale) who knows this league inside out.
“I feel what we have to do is play with the same tempo we showed in the second half in our last home game against Forest Green.
“That was the type of performance I want to see from my team. On the front foot, creating chances and getting the fans behind us.
“Saturday was disappointing but the players have to put it behind us. The great thing about this League is that the opportunity to right a few wrongs is never far away. We have to take that opportunity tonight and get the win which will kick-start our season again.”
Jimmy Smith (hamstring) is again missing tonight so goalkeeper Glenn Morris will lead the side out for the first time at home.
