Ben Kennedy says that the squad have had a timely reminder this week about their potential after the weekend’s disappointing defeat to Hartlepool.

The performance was an out of character display and Kennedy revealed the manager’s message for the week.

“Telling us what our identity is, how we play and reminding us of how good we can be. Reminding us that we are a pressing team, showing us games from the past and showing us how we can play football.

“He has shown us videos which is a good thing because sometimes you might need a reminder.”

Kennedy is enjoying his best form with the club, two years since breaking into the first team after graduating as an academy scholar.

He partly puts the improvement down to a coming of age process he has been going through over the past year.

“I feel like I have settled myself. I used to be a hot head maybe a year ago now but now I keep myself to myself and focus on my own game.

“I have matured a lot. I feel like I am a better man this year and I am enjoying myself so long may it continue.

“Obviously I still have a nasty side to my game and if somebody tries to boot me, I will stand my ground and go toe-to-toe. If one of our players gets tackled and it’s a bad tackle, I will have his back 100%.

“But if I get tackled, back in the day I might have got up and reacted but now I just get up and get on with it.

“It is just a waste of energy and didn’t get me anywhere.

“It could take my mind off the game and it is something I have learned. The Gaffer, Glenn, Ron and all the boys have helped me. I appreciate it.”
