Danny backs his defence

6 September 2012

Danny Wilson is not unduly worried about United conceding three goals last weekend, although he admits it is 'concerning'.

United have shipped five goals in four League One matches this term, but the Gaffer believes the majority have been down to slips in concentration and is adamant that it will improve:

"Our defending in general play has been pretty good but we have switched off at a few set-pieces and paid a heavy price each time.

"We have got some very good defenders in the squad but they need to help others and make sure they are switched on throughout the game.

"We have looked at the situation in great detail, because conceding goals, especially three at home, is always concerning.

"Sometimes the defence is left exposed and we have been caught out a few times already, but if we win 5-3 every week then obviously I will be happy, but we are trying to strike a very fine balance to be successful."
