In an encouraging declaration of intent, Stewart Downing has spoken the words we have all been waiting to hear and hoping to see fulfilled.
Aaron Cresswell has said similar things declaring earlier the team will scrap for every point and although we appear to have only league position to play for, it’s good to hear such positivity.
All we need now is for it to actually happen!
Downing has bravely put his head on the block by claiming that with the two main strikers now fit the team can carry the attack to a Stoke City team.
Ultimately, of course, that will be the manager’s decision but the winger none the less declared: We’re on the same number of points, so it’s a massive game,
“It was a difficult one when we played there and we got a draw out of it, but we’re at home now and I think Enner’s back for the weekend. Diafra is there too so we can have a right good go at them and get the goalscorers back in the team.
“It was a good game for me when we played earlier in the season, scoring one and setting Enner up too. It was a game of two halves – in the first half we were poor and didn’t get going, but in the second half we were really good.
