Make home advantage count – Liam Feeney

Winger calls on Wanderers to continue impressive home form against Brighton

Liam Feeney has stressed the importance of Wanderers continuing their impressive home form against Sky Bet Championship league leaders Brighton & Hove Albion on  Saturday.

The Whites’ clash against the Seagulls will be their last game at Macron Stadium for three-and-a-half weeks due to the looming October international break.

And after seeing their four-game unbeaten come to an end last time out away at Huddersfield Town, Feeney has called on his team-mates to bounce back in front of their home fans.

“We’re looking forward to the game, especially with it being at home,” the winger told “We haven’t really found our form away from home yet but at home we can be pretty proud – we’ve been pretty solid. 

“We’ve turned Macron Stadium into a fortress. It is important we keep our home record going for the fans and for the club, so it’s important that that is what we’re looking do. 

“Last week was disappointing, especially after starting so well. We’ve had a good week’s training and we’re now looking to put things right. 

“It’ll be a difficult game with Brighton being top of the league and undefeated, but I’m sure we’ll give them a tough game and we’re looking for the three points.”

Feeney continued: “We’re still finding our feet as a team, with a few new faces. In the general the performances haven’t been too bad, especially at home. 

“We just need to turn a few of those draws into wins and defeats into draws if we can. Hopefully I can score again and help us get a good result this time. 

“It’s always nice to go into an international break in good form and with a couple of good results. It makes the break all the better. 

“You can get lads rested and back from injury before going again into the next batch of games. 

“We’ll be putting in the hard work to make sure we get as much as possible from these next two games going into the break.”
