Nobody Likes Us, We Don't Care
Updated Friday, 10th August 2012
Kenny Sheils likes how Terry Butcher uses a preceived disadvantage to his advantage.
He said: "Inverness have great spirit and the players are committed to their manager. We know it is going to be a tough game and they have motivational tools, like saying 'the central belt doesn't like us and they don't want us to be in the league'. I agree with him, I am not being critical, I am saying that is great that he does that and so he should. He wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't. It is never an easy place to go, everybody keeps saying that. They get into you and make life difficult. They are good games against Inverness and hopefully we will get a good crowd on Saturday."
Shiels believes his side are gradually getting up to speed following their goalless draw against SPL new boys Dundee at home in the first game of the league campaign. He said: "Last week's game was typical of two teams who weren't ready for it. It favoured them because it was so early in the season. We have sharpened things up since then but like most of the teams in the SPL we won't be up to speed until September."
Shiels will not have Spanish target Borja Perez signed in time for tomorrow's game despite the former Real Madrid youth player featuring in James Fowler's testimonial game against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek. The Killie manager said: "Things are ongoing with that. It is at the early stages. He is not going to be signed for tomorrow."
