Jack King says that despite the defeat to Plymouth last weekend, he and his teammates have remained upbeat going into Saturday’s trip to Morecambe.
“You have to (be in a positive frame of mind) for every game. You can’t win by moping about, feeling sorry for yourself – that won’t pick up any points in this league. You have got to go in with a positive attitude and certainly we will be doing that and looking to pick up all three points on Saturday.
“We have looked at the positives from Saturday, we have taken on the negatives and we work on both. The gaffer is pretty good at that, it has definitely been positive this week and the lads have looked sharp.
“If you turn up to a game and are 5, 10% off it as a team, then you will get rolled over. It doesn’t matter if you are playing bottom of the league or top of the league, we are fully aware of that.”
Since joining the club at the end of August, King has played in every game and has become a vital part of the team. The good news is that despite impressing, he says he still hasn’t reached full strength.
“I have done OK. I have played in a couple of positions already since I have been here and we started off flying with a couple of early wins, which is always pleasing but I am getting fitter and stronger.
“I am feeling nearly up to match fitness which is nice having not played for so long. Hopefully that can only help the team, it is nice to be back playing and I am really enjoying my time here.”
Finally, King touched on the arrival of Nicky Shorey as part of Darren Sarll’s coaching staff.
“First of all he obviously brings a wealth of experience. He has played at various levels and I think with our coaching staff, they all bring different qualities. Nicky has been fairly hands on this week with coaching, he has done a lot of technical sessions and so far so good really with regards to him.”
