Paul looks for positive reaction from squad as pre-season hots up

Paul Hurst says the uncertainty that a new manager brings can be a good thing for players.

The Town boss has taken his squad to Alicante in Spain this week for a training camp as Blues step up the build up to the new campaign.

“A lot of the players know each other so team spirit is not going to be a problem because they played together last year but it’s a good opportunity for the new lads to come in and bond with the rest of the squad,” Paul told the Club website.

“Every day in training I want to see players giving everything and showing they want to improve. That’s the way Chris [Doig] and I like it.

“We want ambitious people around us. I’ll be challenging every player. Take Wags [Martyn Waghorn] for example. He got 16 goals last season. I want him to try and beat that. That’s the challenge for him.

“I don’t want anyone to be satisfied with what they did last season. Can you kick on again?

“Every player has a clean slate and the chance to impress before we start the season. Yes, there will be a bit of uncertainty with players but that can be a good thing.”
