Adams: "I want to win every game."
Micky Adams will go looking for his first three points as Sligo Rovers boss against Drogheda United.
The new manager took charge for the first time a week ago at The Showgrounds when Cork City took away a 2-0 win.
He has been boosted by the return to fitness of some players with the squad also added to this week by the signing of striker Anthony Elding.
However Adams says it may take some time before Elding is match-fit: “We had Anthony Elding, John Russell and Danny Ledwith who have been training so we are getting more numbers back fit and onto the training ground. They’ll all be competing for a place sooner rather than later.”
After losing last weekend at the hands of Cork City he says the players are still in good spirits for the crucial trip to United Park: “They’ve been fine. Obviously disappointed with the last result, not the performance, but the result. As far as everyone is concerned we draw a line under it, forget about it and prepare as well as we can for the next game.”
He has looked at Johnny McDonnell’s side but he believes that the fate of his side between now and the end of the season is in their own hands: “I have seen a little bit of them, I know their shape and their personnel that are involved with them. But I’ve concentrated mainly on us and what we can do better and how we want to play so we are ready for the game.
“We haven’t set any points target, there are 10 games left and we want 30 points. I want to win every game, that’s the way I approach football, it’s 11 v 11 and we want to win as many games as we can and if we can win all ten then great.”
