Q: Who do you consider to be the club’s biggest rival and why?

A: Barnsley for me.

Q: Who is your one player to watch out for this season?

A: Chris Wood. Has been the best striker in the league this season. Doubt we'll keep him in the summer if he keeps this kind of form up. 

Q: Is there a particular youth player that excites you, and why?

A: Ronaldo Vieria. He'll play in the Premier League one day.

Q: Where do you think the club will look to strengthen in the summer?

A: A back-up striker and a new No.10 I think, but it all depends on what division we'll be in!

Q: Finally, what are your aims for this season, and where do you think your club will finish?

A: I think we'll definitely make play-offs, then who knows what will happen. The play-offs are a lottery!
