So many signings this week Ive lost track, just who will play today?
‘Any player who plays against their old club wants to do well. But at the same time you’ve got to put that to the back of your mind and be as professional as you can.
‘At Barnsley it took us about 45 minutes to get started, we went into the break and we had a few words with each other and the gaffer spoke to us and second half we performed better.
‘We can’t afford to take 45 minutes to get going, we need to start straight away against Ipswich.’
