Wintle pre-Burnley | We'll need that cutting edge

Ryan Wintle spoke to the press ahead of Saturday afternoon’s return to CCS.

“Obviously it’s a difficult time for everybody when a manager gets changed,” began Ryan. “It’s just about working as hard as you can to be in the team.

“Mark [Hudson] spoke to us as a group and said that we can’t let standards slip, and we need to work for each other. If we can do that, then it will come off in matches and we’ll find ourselves higher up the table.

“It’s a strange old game at times, and hopefully we can put a strong performance together with a good result on Saturday.”

Focussing on Saturday’s return against the Clarets, the midfielder then discussed the busy run of fixtures that October brings.

“It’s going to be a tough game, every match in this division is," Ryan explained. "They’ve spent a bit of money and have a manager with experience. They’re coming to our place, and we don’t like getting beaten anywhere, especially not here. Hopefully we can turn them over.

“We haven’t created as many clear-cut chances as we’d have liked, but we’ve been getting there and having those opportunities, so it’s just about having that cutting edge and making sure that we make the most of them.

“Even at Middlesbrough when we were 3-0 up it could’ve been four or five, so it’s just about being persistent with it.

“Games come thick and fast; you could lose one game and have another two to play in five days. If you put a run together you’ll fly up there, so there’s no time to dwell on it.”
