'We made it too easy after character fightback' - Nagy

Ádám Nagy says City must be more focused and aggressive as he highlighted a lack of concentration for defeat at the Valley on Boxing Day.

Nagy played his part in a second-half fightback from City, who had been a goal down at the break, with his assist setting up Niclas Eliasson’s goal.

That had the Robins 2-1 up over Charlton Athletic, who responded with two goals themselves to seal the 3-2 victory.

Lee Johnson’s men had gone from elation to heartbreak in an emotional rollercoaster of a contest, having showed signs of improvement after the break and deservedly taken the lead with 30 minutes remaining.

But as midfielder Nagy explained in his honest post-match interview, the Robins made it “too easy” for the hosts:

Nagy said: “All of the lads are disappointed especially as we showed character coming back from 1-0 down. We led 2-1 and it was too easy, we gave away the three points too easy, especially we were sloppy in the first half.

“There were too many individual mistakes, starting with me, and we have to be much more aggressive in midfield, especially second balls. At 2-1 we were controlling the game. We need to be more focused, even when we have the ball we have to lock on and think about why we are attacking, what happens if we lose the ball because that’s how we conceded the equaliser and the third goal.

“We were in control, lost the ball and the last goal it was one ball into the deep area, a cross and a tap in so we have to be more concentrating in the defending.

“When a team conceded they are mentally in a better position but at 2-2 we though ‘okay we go again’. We stood up at 1-0 down and I thought we could do it again. But we threw the third goal away too easy so we have to definitely watch and discuss it, work hard to get back on the winning track.”

Johnson’s men host Luton Town on Sunday, their final match of the calendar year.
