Steele delight with armband
“I turned up for the game and the gaffer asked to see me in the dressing room,” said Steele. “I didn’t know what it was about. He asked me how I was feeling, I said ‘good’, he said ‘good because you’re going to be captain today’.
Reds goalkeeper Luke Steele told the press this morning he was ‘proud and honoured’ to have been handed the captaincy on Tuesday night.
“I really did feel proud and honoured. I didn’t expect it and didn’t see it coming.
“I’ve always thought of the captaincy job being so important, it’s just an honour.
“I enjoy the pressure and I enjoy the big moments.
“I’ve been at the club quite a while, I know the place. And it was great to have my mum and dad there as well.”
Heading into Saturday’s clash at Watford, Steele is certain the Reds can turn things around and is encouraged by the team’s passing style.
“The team’s just recently changed dramatically with new players coming in,” he continued.
“I really do think we’ve turned things around. We look like a good side. I’m not worried.
“I still love the way we’re playing and the way the manager wants us to play.
“We’ve made mistakes but the way we’ve played I’ve really enjoyed playing in it. We’ve not gone long, we’ve played it short and passed teams to death. We just need to add them goals to compliment the displays.”
