JERSEY BULLS captain James Quérée says his side has ‘a great opportunity to reset’ after they suffered their first loss of the season, at home against Knaphill.

A goal from George Pilbeam, after only ten minutes of play on Saturday afternoon, was the only difference between the two sides, with Knaphill happy to sit back, soak up the pressure and run the clock down thereon in.

Bulls failed to break their opponent down to leave Springfield for a second time this season without scoring.

‘We’ve got to put things in perspective, to come into towards the end of November and have our first loss of the season,’ said Quérée.

‘We cannot control referee decisions or time-wasting tactics. We’ve got to play forward, play with purpose, create chances and be a bit more clinical.’

Alongside that need for a sharper edge up front, Quérée admits improvements are also needed in defence.

‘At the back, we’ve got to stop conceding sloppy goals,’ he said. ‘If a team breaks you down and plays good football around you, you take your hat off, but over the last couple of weeks we’ve conceded goals which are uncharacteristic to us.

‘But there’s a long season ahead, so we don’t need to hit the panic button just yet.’

Bulls now turn their attention to promotion rivals Badshot Lea, who visit Springfield on Saturday.

Quérée added: ‘We’ve got a great opportunity next week to bounce back and that’s what we want to assess ourselves against.’
