Joe Gorman says he already knows enough about his new team-mates to assert that Cliftonville will soon play their way out of the slump they have recently found themselves in.
Ahead of tomorrow’s Danske Bank Premiership encounter with Ards at Solitude, the Dublin native is determined to play his part in setting the foundations from which the Reds can rediscover their best form.
“It’s important to keep a clean sheet,” explains the 24-year-old.
“If you keep a clean sheet, you’ll have a chance in the game. That’s my main priority because if the defenders can keep a clean sheet, it will let the forwards do their job.
“We’ve taken a bit of slack at the moment but if the supporters stand by us, we’ll get though the rut. That’s definitely one hundred per cent going to happen.”
