Notts Loan Boys Up For The Fight

4 February 2014

Striker Kwesi Appiah says that the loan boys are right up for the challenge of keeping Notts County in Sky Bet League 1.

Appiah has made three substitute appearances since signing on loan from Premier League Crystal Palace and is desperate to taste victory for the first time in the Black and White stripes. 

Having been part of the sides that faced Peterborough United, Walsall and Preston North End, the striker shares the same frustrations as the rest of the dressing room and is eager to put things right against Coventry City.

“It still affects you because at the end of the day you’re playing for that club and you’ve got to give your all for that team,” he said

“If I didn’t, I know I’d soon find out about it but I want to be part of this fight here. 

“It hurts me to lose as well but as a loan player you’ve got to add a bit more to it and show why you’ve been brought in. 

“Obviously the players already here will dig in so hopefully we can all pull together to get us out of it.”

He added: “Loan spells can be a bit of a selfish thing, as it’s about you going out there to impress, but in instances like this it’s different, as you need to get out a sticky situation.

“If the team does well, I do well and it looks good for me as well. 

“I want to be one of the players that helps us to get out of the situation that we’re in and the gaffer and Greg can hopefully help me in my career as well, so hopefully it works out.”
