BREWERS boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says that responsibility for getting goals is shared across the team – not just the strikers.
The Gaffer says: “We want to get goals from everywhere in our squad. That will get us success. We have to have that flexibility. It’s not just the strikers that have to chip in.”
Hasselbaink adds that he was not concerned about the barren spell in front of goal that was finally broken with two late goals against Port Vale.
“You have to stay calm and, as simple as it sounds, you just have to keep going, doing the right things and putting yourself in the positions where you can hurt the opposition. You have to keep putting the crosses in, keep making those runs and movements.
"We spoke about it and they know I expect that of them and that all I ask is that they are in the position where they can score or miss. The moment you stop doing those things you have a problem.”
As a former top striker, Hasselbaink knows how to deal with a lean spell in front of goal.
“I have gone through patches where I didn’t score and you have to keep on believing and be single minded and be strong. That counts for everybody.”
