“We are fighting together and we can do it. We have more than enough depth in the squad and we’re capable of doing that.

“I sense big determination. I’m just coming into the team so I’m not 100% where I need to be with the tactics and stuff but I feel we have a big determination within the group, a big togetherness and we have more than enough ability to get out of where we are right now.

“We are trying to implement a new style of play,” he added.

“Trying to press high, and do a few different formations so we’re still getting going but as you saw against Manchester United for 60 minutes, we went to Old Trafford and put up a really good fight.

“If we take that into the next game, we will do really well.

“We’ve come a long way. Every day in training I can see improvements from when I got here until now – it’s a massive improvement so I can’t wait for the next few weeks to see what it holds.

“Everyone should be trying to get on the score sheet. We need to have that in the team. We need to be hungry to score more goals.

“With Callum Wilson injured right now, we all need to step up and take responsibility to score more goals.”
