Skipper says Town have to start the season on front foot

Luke Chambers says Town have to hit the ground running when the new season kicks off in August and says the supporters will rightly expect that.

The skipper also says there will be one message that he will be relaying to his team-mates when the squad returns for pre-season training at the end of June - win.

“The supporters will expect a reaction when we get going after last season and rightly so,” Chambo told the Club website.

“I’ve said it before that as players we got away with ‘murder’ last year, with a positive environment about the place even though we weren’t winning games.

“That won’t last long next season though and we will need players to step up and deliver.

“We will need the younger players to do that and we also need those experienced players who have been there before and know the league to lead the way.

“It’s an opportunity to bounce back at the first time of asking and that has to be our aim.

“When the players come back for pre-season, I’ll be saying ‘we’re not here to have a fun time. We’re here to win matches and get out of this league’. That will be the message I’ll be saying.”
