Bannan Promises Positive Reaction

Bannan Promises Positive Reaction

Barry Bannan has promised supporters that being more clinical in front of goal will click soon and the team are working hard on it.

Speaking on the Official Site after our ever so slightly embarrassing loss to Blackburn, Bannan was adamant that the squad would pull together and soon go on another unbeaten run....this time preferably by notching up wins.

Speaking on the Blackburn game itself, the Bananaman said:

'It was a tough game, we knew coming here you've got to accept that they are going to be good at set pieces, get in your face and the goal just before half time killed us really.'

He is however optimistic about our future this season, despite the choppy start.

'We are good going forward, but we just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. We'll come back to training and work on it, and next hopefully next week things will be better.'

Another reason for optimism according to Bannan is the arrival of Robert Pires, who he is hoping to learn as much as is possible from.

'I'm seen him training the last couple of days and his touch is unbelievable, just having him around the place in training you are going to learn things because in the prime of his career he was one of the best players around. You've got to learn from these players.'

Pires certainly should be an asset to the younger players but the main issue for now is getting back to winning ways and putting points on the table, so it's very heartening to hear Bannan be so honest about the whole team improving and working hard in training to put it right.

The younger players especially will be a little up and down, but the harder they are prepared to work the better they will become. Being tipped for stardom and clearly having potential is one thing, taking the occasional bump that reminds you you aren't quite there yet can go a long way.

.......tipped for stardom and clearly having potential is one thing, taking the occasional bump that reminds you you aren't quite there yet can go a long way. Totally agree Mike.
