Wanderers have now won just three of their last 15 games and were booed off at half-time and full-time.

Solbakken said: "It is the same story as against Peterborough (a 3-0 home defeat on Boxing Day).

"We started okay but after Ipswich scored it looked like an uphill battle.

"For me when you are under an amount of pressure like you are now then it is about having to win the battle with yourself.

"I think that you have to go out and make sure that you do what you think is right.

"I think at the moment I think we look a little bit scared.

"That must not be the case. We must show everyone that we have the character and at the moment the two worst performances of the season have been the two last ones. It can't get any worse.

"We may have to make changes and if that is something we have to do then we have to do it. It is about getting the right mix and that mix hasn't been right lately."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
