Fabianski critical of team attitude
West Ham United goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski says his team became complacent during their 2-0 loss to Cardiff on Saturday.
In a poor display away at Neil Warnock’s strugglers, the Hammers conceded two goals early in each half to go down to a tame defeat.
They are still ninth in the league, but five points behind Wolves in seventh and have not won an away game in seven fixtures.
And, Fabianski, who made a great double save from Oumar Niasse and Victor Camarasa in the second half to prevent the scoreline from getting worse, says the squad need to apply themselves better in away games against sides lower in the table.
"We always say that. The manager says that as well. That is something it’s been this season happening quite a few times. That is the mental side of the game that we have to improve," Fabianski said after the game.
"Some of the games, like for example the last game against Newcastle, we started really well. You could see that the team was up for it. I don't know, maybe being in the comfort zone, being in a good position, being safe, relaxes you a bit."
