Inniss: 'It's all about belief'


Ryan Inniss says the Addicks are full of belief ahead of Saturday's clash against Derby County at Pride Park.

Dean Holden's side travel to Derbyshire in fine form having won five league games in seven since the turn of the year - including three consecutive away successes. 

Looking ahead to this weekend's meeting, Inniss said: “It's all about belief. Yes, it'll be a tough game away from home but we've won away and we've won at home.

"We want to go there and give a real good account of ourselves. I feel like we've done that in away games in the past but not quite come away with a result.

"We need to stand tall and get a footing in the game," he added. "We're in good form as well and it'll be a great match. It's one to look forward to because they're the games you want to play in."

The 27-year-old was full of praise for Manager Dean Holden.

“The gaffer has come in and instilled confidence in what we already had in the group and made some changes," explained Inniss. "Belief is the main thing and that real fight - I feel like we're more resolute. Every player to a man is standing tall, whether it's the lads coming on or the lads starting games. There is that real steeliness about us and we want to continue.

“We've got great lads here," continued the defender. "It helps winning five out of seven as that is always going to boost the morale. It's always been there. We can have a laugh and a joke but also put our heads down and really put the work in. We've got some good characters which is what you need and I'm thoroughly enjoying it."
