We’re all looking forward to getting the fans back at Goodison Park for our game against Wolves on Wednesday night.
We had such a disappointing result against Sheffield United on Sunday and we’ve got to come back and perform in front of our supporters.
We know we have to improve our home form.
We prepare well every day in training and aim to beat every team we play, but we have to look at where we could have done better in those games we’ve lost at Goodison.
No matter what player you speak to, they’ll say playing in empty stadiums has made a difference – but we have to look at ourselves and take responsibility.
It’s been a difficult period for everyone in the past 14 months, so it’s great we’ve got to the stage where we can have our supporters back at Goodison again.
We had 2,000 fans in the stadium for a couple of our games just before Christmas and, with the noise they made, it felt like a full house.
There will be treble that amount of fans on Wednesday and we want to put on a performance for them and get that win.
We know it will be a tough game against Wolves. They’ve had a few injuries and they’ve had to adapt because of that, but they’re are a good side and we’ll need to be at our best to get the three points.
In terms of European qualification, all we can do is try to win our final two games and see where it takes us.
On a personal level, I feel I’m in a good place and I’ve been happy with my form.
I’ve had a couple of injuries this season and been rested for a few games, too.
The manager has got that knowledge and experience of resting keepers. At Real Madrid, he had Iker Casillas and Diego Lopez and he rested them on occasions. He’s done it everywhere.
The manager has sometimes described it as a mental break. Of course, though, I want to play in every game and that’s what I prepare myself for.
For me, it’s about continuing to improve and getting that consistency week in, week out.
I’m 27 and I’ve played a lot of games. I’m maturing every time I step out on the field. I’ve had a lot of experience and that has made me a lot better.
I feel I’m getting that consistency in my performances and I’m eager to continue that.
