Callum Styles gave his thoughts ahead of our trip to Craven Cottage.
On Poya Asbaghi
“I don’t know much about him, if I’m being honest. I just know he’s from Sweden U21s and they play good football, so I’m excited for when he comes.
“We had some time with the break to get the position filled and he’s coming in on Monday, so we’re all excited to see him.
“We’re just excited to see what philosophy he brings and we’re all going to get behind him and do everything we can on the pitch to fulfil his philosophy.”
On style of play
“The Championship is a tough league, so you want to play nice football and you want it to be attractive football. But, on the other hand, you also want to win games, so I think you need that mixture – you obviously need a clear philosophy and structure – but I think a mixture is key with the different opponents you come up against.”
“We all know it hasn’t been good enough since the start of the season as where we are in the table. We’ve obviously tried our best on the pitch, but it for some reason hasn’t clicked into place and we haven’t been winning as many games as what we should.
“But we’re hoping to flip that, come Saturday.”
On Carlton Morris
“Carlton’s a very good player – starting and off the bench. He makes a very big impact and we need that directness in games and, hopefully he can show that.”
On personal performances
“I would have liked to have contributed more, but I think the whole team is with me in saying that every single player could have contributed more. But we’re just hoping to turn things around now – it’s been long enough and we need to start getting some winning streaks.”
On previous experience
“We’ve had to galvanise as players when it hasn’t been going well – and it hasn’t been going well at times this season. But you have ups and downs in football and you have to get through that, stick together and pull through.”
“It’s just another team in the Championship; anyone can beat anyone on their day, so we’re just going to go out, give everything and hopefully get the three points.”
