I feel like I’m getting back up to where I was last season. I’ve obviously been here since the age of seven and it’s the place I want to be and the team I want to play for, so hopefully I can get back up to the standards I was last season.

“I’m working hard in training every day with all the coaches and stuff, so hopefully I’ll be back there soon. It’s just a challenge, really, after you’ve played for the first season.

“Not really many of the players know what you’re going to do. They don’t really analyse your performance and stuff. But obviously as a second season, teams try and catch up on it so you really have to have a few more tricks up your sleeve and obviously do as much as you can to do the best you can, really.”
