STEVEN GERRARD is looking forward to a test against Hamilton on Sunday and is focussed on getting back to winning ways.
Speaking at yesterday’s press conference, Gerrard said: “It’ll be another tricky test for us. We’ve had a tough week in terms of results, so the idea from our point of view is to get back to winning ways.
“I think that getting a win is always a nice feeling and it creates a bit of calmness around the place. It’s a very important fixture for us and the plan is to go and get three points.
“There’s five games to go and we want to try and win as many of them as we can to put ourselves in a decent place going in to the winter break.
“We’ve got some difficult fixtures coming up, but I think it’s important to focus on the one that is next and that’s Hamilton.”
The Gers are half way through a busy December, with five matches still to be played between now and the closure of League action for the winter break.
Prior to the results against Dundee and Aberdeen, the Gers had topped the table following a hard fought and well deserved win over Hearts at Tynecastle, but the manager is just focussing on one game at a time.
Gerrard continued: “I think it’s always important when you’ve had a little tricky spell, where emotions are running high in the dressing room, on the terraces, and in the media, it’s important that you get back to winning ways.
“I think that seven or eight days ago, we were in a fantastic place. The last two results in the league have been disappointing. I think that our performances have been frustrating.
“Seven days after being in a fantastic place, we’re not too happy with where we are sitting. So, I think the main thing for us is to get three points on the board and then see where we are and assess it again.
“I think that when we were sitting top eight days ago, I said that we wouldn’t get carried away and that we would remain humble and we knew there was a lot of hard work to do.
“That hasn’t changed, but the Hamilton fixture then becomes very important to us and it’s important that the players understand that.”
