Steele on key to bouncing back
The Reds suffered their fourth defeat on the spin on Saturday against Huddersfield, but goalkeeper Luke Steele is determined to help his side bounce back.
Asked what it would take to end the bad run, Steele stressed there’s no point hitting the panic button and that hard work will lift his side away from the danger zone. “It’s going to take hard work on the training pitch," he added.
"Confidence in sport is the biggest subject that gets talked about. You can’t control confidence – if you could you’d be a millionaire because it’s the secret ingredient that makes an athlete, player, football, businessman or whatever." "The Barnsley fans were spot on - you can’t fault them, you can never fault them. I don’t expect anything from the fans. People may criticise and say there’s not enough or not loud enough. I never ever think like that. I mean, they’re paying to come to a sporting event. They don’t have to sing, be enthusiastic, but we’re getting paid to play. It’s our job and they expect a certain level. Performance comes before the crowd, it’s not the crowd and then performance. We’ve got to show positive performances and good play to get the crowd on their feet and applauding.
