Stephen Ireland has faith in Stoke City


Stephen Ireland thinks that they just need to fix a few things and they should avoid the relagation zone with comfort. Ireland scored his first league goal in two years last weekend against Swansea City.

Stephen Ireland said: “To make sure we are not sitting in the relegation zone is important, especially going into an international break, but we should be a bit higher than what we are. We are all aware of that and we are all working hard for that.”

“It’s a few minor details about finishing games off and seeing games out when we are in such a great positions. There are a few little things we need to fix, but we are heading in the right direction.”

“We are kicking ourselves. We put ourselves in such a good position, but couldn’t finish the job. It could have been a hell of a lot worse if we lost 3-2, but we are still kicking ourselves. We came out with the right intention in the second half but it wasn’t to be. But we did rescue a draw in the end so we can take something from it rather than nothing. It could have been worse.”

“Football is just crazy. At 2-0 up to 3-2 behind then getting a penalty in the last minute to save a point. It’s crazy.”

The midfielder has previously scored in the league cup against Tranmere Rovers but has been trying so hard to score league goals.

Stephen Ireland said: “I knew we were going to play Peter Crouch up top, and I knew that it was off Crouchy that I can make my runs. Thankfully it worked like that to get my goal. I know how Crouchy wants to play and I knew he’d see that pass. Goals and assists are an important part of my game and I need to get them going.”
