Brendan Rodgers: Confidence will soon be back


Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says back-to-back positive results are a must for his players to regain confidence.

The Reds' last win of the season without penalties was more than a month ago, a 1-0 home win against Bournemouth.

Since then, they registered only draws and defeats, a negative run ended after the penalty shootout on Wednesday night against Carlisle in the League Cup.

"After the first few games we wanted to be more creative and if you're getting into the areas to have those shots then that's obviously very pleasing," Rodgers told reporters.

"However, what you're looking for is to be clinical, you have to be efficient in your game, there's no point in having those shots if you're not going to turn them into goals.

"That's something that we've worked hard on over the last couple of days, reinforcing that mentality and positivity to score, and in the game it's all about confidence.

"Once we get a sequence of wins and we get the goals that the players are working hard to create and score then I'm sure you'll see that confidence level lift and the players will really go on and express themselves."
