Birmingham City loanee Charlie Lakin says he has been very impressed with how John Hughes has introduced himself at Ross County.
The talented midfielder arrived in Dingwall on deadline day as Birmingham City look to build up his senior experience. Brought to the Highlands by Stuart Kettlewell, his successor gave Lakin his first minutes since November on Saturday against St Johnstone after a spell out with a hamstring injury.
Now fit and raring to go under Hughes, the Birmingham City talent says it’s been a joy so far: “He’s brought a real togetherness, he’s got the team behind him, he’s got everyone together and brought a belief that it’s possible to do anything and that every game counts.
“There’s a lot of positivity that he’s brought into the group, there’s a real togetherness between all the players, the staff and everyone at the club. Hard work is obviously bread and butter for everyone but especially for the gaffer right now, that’s what he wants.
“He wants everyone to be working hard, no matter if you’re on the pitch or off the pitch, you have a part to play.
“Obviously, organisation is also key to keep that back door shut because we were conceding a lot of goals. To keep that organisation as a main part (of our game) is definitely at the top of his pecking order.”
