Nigeria international Joe Aribo has expressed his disappointment following Southampton’s home defeat to Everton FC.
Aribo’s goal counted for little as the Saint surrendered a lead to a 1-2 defeat at Saint Mary Stadium.
Former Rangers f Scotland player was disappointed about the result but believed the squad is big enough to bounce back in their next game.
“The boys are disappointed. Going a goal ahead, it’s frustrating to concede so soon, and the boys are disappointed because we wanted to get a result today and that wasn’t the case,” Aribo said.
“I was thinking about it earlier today, that we’ve been coming from behind, so to get a goal ahead was a good feeling.
To concede so soon is bitterly frustrating, and I and the boys were not happy about it. We need to go back to the drawing board, focus and learn from our mistakes.
“That’s the Premier League. Sometimes if you don’t take your chances, you get punished – that’s the game. If you make mistakes, you get punished also.
“We just need to recover because the games are coming thick and fast, and we need to be ready.
“The squad is big, so everyone needs to be focused. We need to work together, be strong, be a unit and be ready to go”, he told the club media.
