Christmas is on the horizon and there’s only thing that Dean Smith wants – points!
Smith admits that a maximum haul against both Stoke and Leeds would certainly fill him with festive cheer as he continues to build our promotion bid this term.
He was out where he loves on the eve of the Potters game – the training field – as he looks to raise the performance levels of his players week after week.
He says the players have been very open to his methods, which has ensured quality performances and results – and a spark in the stands.
The Head Coach want that to continue, stressing: “There does appear to be a feelgood factor.
“It helps with the run of performances and results we’ve had.
“We want to make sure that continues. The only way you can do that is by putting in performances that the supporters want to see.”
