Coleman’s keen as mustard for win

The Toffees are bottom of the Premier League with three draws and

three defeats by their opening six fixtures, but Coleman is

shutting out the doom merchants. Instead, the Republic of Ireland

Under-21 international right-back is solely concentrating on the

bid for victory on Saturday at St Andrew’s, where Alex McLeish’s

men are unbeaten in over a year. He told the club’s official

website: “I’d like to forget about what’s going to happen at the

end of the season and just start winning. “You don’t want to be

looking towards the end of the season before you’ve kicked a ball

because anything can happen in football. You need to take each game

as it comes. “Every game in the Premier League is tough, and you

have to treat the lower teams the same as the top teams. Look at

West Brom beating Arsenal at the weekend.” Coleman is adamant that

one win can spark a recovery for David Moyes’ side. “One win gets a

bit of confidence back,” said the 21-year-old, who started the 0-0

draw at Fulham last time out. “Football is a lot to do with

confidence, and wins will give us more of that. “If we can put a

good run together then people start changing their tone – three or

four games unbeaten, and you’re flying.”
