Vibe CT 105 W Connection striker Andre Toussaint felt his team could have played better against Defence Force in their TT Pro League encounter at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Saturday.
The Trinidad and Tobago striker, who left on Sunday for ‘A’ League club Charleston Battery in Florida, admitted he wasn’t satisfied with what was his last game for W Connection for some time as he failed to find the back of the net against the Soldiers.
“I was a little disappointed in my finishing,” said Toussaint.
“However, I found that the team played well, although we made one or two mistakes. We got the three points, but I feel we could rectify the problems and avoid making such errors in the future.”
Toussaint says he needs to improve on his work ethic and show more determination in order to get the ball in the back of the net on a more consistent basis.
“I have to work harder than I am currently doing at the moment and I have to avoid being too casual with the ball. I have to work very hard to achieve whatever I want in life.”
Toussaint urged his teammates at Connection to play to the best of their ability against arch-rivals CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh in their next league match on Tuesday.
Jabloteh are on currently on top of the table with 26 points, while the ‘Savonetta Boys’ are fourth on 19 points.
“The boys are coming along quite well ahead of that game against San Juan Jabloteh. My advice to them is to play their natural game. We must just keep on doing what we are accustomed to doing, scoring our chances, defending properly and working hard for one another.”
The top striker believed the victory against the Army/Coastguard outfit set the foundation for better things to come.
Toussaint said Connection had the ability to bounce back and win the Pro League title, which they surrendered last year to Joe Public.
“I think this game would have given us a boost because we had several injuries earlier on this season. Players are coming back out and we have guys on the bench getting goals for us. This win will motivate the players and unite them for the remaining games.”
Toussaint, who will be at Charleston Battery for three months, has set high standards for himself when representing the US-based club.
“I will be in Florida until October where I am looking forward to having a good season and hoping to do my best,” ended the soft-spoken T&T forward.
