Commenting on his situation he declared to “I had a little niggle in January, but I’m back to it now and it’s up to me as an attacking player to help us win games.”

That represents something of a worry with Lucas Paqueta being predicted by some as possibly going to make some sort of appearance tomorrow evening.

And we have reported our own sources claim there may be a risk so it’s not good to hear given that he is goal-less during the five games since he was injured.

However, as we would expect, Jarrod is confident we can turn things around when Brentford visit to tomorrow evening

He says  the response from each member of the squad has been to take responsibility for the performances in 2024 so far.

He said: “Everyone’s upset with the way things have gone recently. We all know that we have to stand up and confront these tough spells.

“It’s been difficult, but football comes with its good and bad moments, and we just have to work our way through it. I’ve looked at myself as well – I had a little niggle in January, but I’m back to it now and it’s up to me as an attacking player to help us win games.

“I believe in the quality of this squad, and I know that when we’re at our best we can go on unbeaten runs. There are no easy games in the Premier League, but you have to have belief and sometimes that one result is what it takes to turn things around.”

He added: “We know it’s going to be a tough game. Ivan Toney has looked good since he came back from his ban, and they’re always very disciplined and well organised.

“We’ve done our preparation, and I think we have a good idea of what we can do and what they can do. I think a lot of it is about mindset now and fighting to win games, and I’m confident we have the tools to get over the line.”
