Skipper Micah Richards has said that he doesn’t need to lift the boys ahead of games given his role as captain because everybody is already determined to improve our woeful run of results so far in 2015-16.

Speaking to the Official Site ahead of our trip to Stamford Bridge this weekend to face struggling Premier League Champions Chelsea, Richards explained that he felt confidence and spirit was good within the camp and everybody was focused on bringing our four game losing streak to an end, and then kicking on up the table.

‘As the skipper, it’s my job to make sure the boys are staying positive during this difficult spell. But this hasn’t been a problem because I can’t fault the attitude of the boys. Their desire to do the best they can is there in abundance too – and we will soon start picking up. These reasons mean that I’m really confident that results will come sooner rather than later.’

Richards went on to say that in some ways whilst the players had to accept they hadn’t done enough and hadn’t been good enough in moments during games – he felt we were in a run where we were being badly punished for errors as having reviewed games in training our overall performance – well in his own words.

‘Overall, I don’t think you can say we’ve played badly in the majority of our games so far this season. Yes we’ve been sloppy at times and made too many costly mistakes but on the whole we’ve been creating chances and scoring goals. If we carry on doing the right things, it won’t be long before we start seeing greater rewards for our efforts.’

With Sherwood’s record at Stamford Bridge reading no win as a player or manager since the 1990’s, we have our own 17 year wait to conquer so it’s about are we going to give a struggling team a leg up again this weekend or are we finally going to make a struggling team pay and send it in our direction?
