New boy believes Potters have more than enough quality to ease relegation fears...
BADOU NDIAYE believes he and his teammates will do all their talking on the pitch over the final few months of the season to secure the Club’s top-flight status.
Last weekend’s undeserved defeat against AFC Bournemouth on the south coast plummeted the Potters back into the bottom three, although just three points separate Paul Lambert’s men from West Ham United in 13th.
Ndiaye, who produced a hugely impressive performance on his Premier League debut at the Vitality Stadium, insists there is more than enough quality within the building to survive.
“It is difficult because we are in a position like this and we always know that we have to go out there and win the three points,” he told the latest edition of #pottersmag, which is available to purchase prior to this weekend’s fixture.
“It is very tight, there are a lot of teams involved in the battle, but we will just focus on ourselves because we have the players here to move up.
“It is very important for us to stay in the Premier League - we all know what it means, but we don’t need to sit and talk about the importance of it. We all know it!"
“We have to do our talking on the pitch, and make sure that we achieve what we feel we can achieve.”
He added: “We have the quality here to move up the table, and as I said before, I am very sure we will do that over the coming weeks.”
