New boy Robert Snodgrass insists that team work is the No.1 ingredient in the recipe for success this season.
Snodgrass admits he’s a big admirer of the claret and blue squad, stressing there’s strength in depth throughout.
But he believes the unseen quality of football friendship will play a big role as we look to achieve our aims this term.
You need a good dressing room – lads who are focused on the pitch and then can have a laugh off it too.
He said: “Team work is absolutely key.
“It goes without saying that you need those individual bits of quality. But you need everybody to be together – the fans, the club, the players.
“The manager has already spoken about that and it’s something he believes in too.
“The squad has got strength in depth. But it’s also about character as a group. It’s not about individuals, it’s about everyone playing as a team.
“You need a good dressing room – lads who are focused on the pitch and then can have a laugh off it too.
“You win together. You lose together. You need to experience those range of emotions together and that’s what I find is the key ingredient in a successful team.
“You are together as one.”
