Broom: We need to keep showing what we can do

Fleetwood Town midfielder Ryan Broom spoke to the media at Poolfoot Farm ahead of Saturday's Sky Bet League One match against Wycombe Wanderers at Highbury Stadium.

Broom - who joined Town on a free transfer in the summer from Cheltenham Town - has started the last three matches under new boss Lee Johnson, and has overseen the team take seven points from their last three games, with the latest being a 2-0 win on former territory.

The 27-year-old says he feels settled in the area after moving from down south, and with getting minutes on the pitch and knowing there is huge togetherness within the group, the Welshman is now hoping that this is start of something good.

Let's see what Ryan had to say in his pre-match press conference:

On the recent turnaround…

“Yes, it does feel like we’ve turned a corner. We’ve had some great results in the last three games but the mood in the camp has been good for a while, so it’s about going into games and helping each other out, and that even counts when we are on the training ground.

“If you are in the team or not, we are all here to help each other improve individually and as a collective, and luckily, we have got the results to back up what we’ve been doing.

“The manager has been great to work with. Training has been very good and when he came in, we were low on confidence as a group. We weren't getting the results, so it was important to just give us all a lift and the staff that have come in have done that brilliantly.

“Now it’s about maintaining these levels and keep doing what we’ve bene doing over the last three weeks. It has been tough, but since I signed for the previous manager, all I wanted to do was impress him, but things change in football. The new manager has come in and we’ve all said we need to go again so it has felt new, it’s been a clean slate and we’ve all pulled together.”

On the last few games…

“Clean sheets are massive in any league. Lynchy [Jay Lynch] is a huge part of that being the goalkeeper but his overall play has been brilliant. On a defensive and whole team note, we’ve worked hard to get those two clean sheets and even our strikers with the way they press, they got to take credit for their high press.

“It’s a collective thing and as I said, if we are keeping clean sheets, it is easier for us to go and win games. On a personal note, I have enjoyed the last few games. I feel settled in and I really like the area. It’s new to me and with the family coming up, they like it, so all is good.”

On this weekend’s game…

“Home form is going to be important for us. With the way we’ve been going recently, we want to keep focusing on us and what we can do, but we know what we are going to get from Wycombe on Saturday.

“They are notoriously a strong, physical and direct side so we will be looking to front up the task in training and on the day of the game, but we do need to show what we can do like we have done in the last two games.”
