Keith Curle ahead of the trip to face Luton Town
Manager Keith Curle spoke to us ahead of the trip to face Luton Town on Saturday.
“It’s a game the lads are looking forward to,” he said. “There’s an excellent attitude developing in that changing room because there’s no fear. We played very well against a team who went top of the league on Tuesday and that shows what we’re about.
“We’ve put a marker down to say that is a minimum. If we keep doing it we’ll cause teams a lot of problems.”
“I know Luton have been talking about an appeal against the red card for McNulty but we don’t make our team selections purely based on the opposition,” he continued. “They’ve got a good squad but we know we can match them if we play to our maximum.
“They’re very attack minded, with a real goal threat, and they will need attention paying to them. We’ll have that usual attention to detail with how we prepare, but the focus will be largely on what we’re going to do and how we’re going to perform.
“They will be very happy with where they are in the league table but that comes with a different sort of pressure. They were expected to get a victory against York, at home, and people will have thought they had a banker six points with us being their next game.
“They only got the one point against York so it puts extra emphasis on them to get more from the game with us. Our job will be to make sure they don’t get it.”
“I think it will be a good atmosphere and I expect us to take a very vocal support,” he concluded. “I’m demanding from the players that we back that support up with the level of performance we saw on Tuesday night. We’re looking to build on what we’ve done in recent weeks and we’ll only do that if we get the same levels or commitment, work rate and positive approach.”
