Drey Wright issues honest assessment of his own form at Hibs
But, the summer signing knows he will have to up his performance levels if he is to get that opportunity.
“It has been more frustrating than anything,” said Wright. “I am in and out of the team and that is my own fault because I have not been good enough. I have picked up silly little injuries but, hopefully, that is behind me.
“This week in training, I feel I have been training well, so I’m hoping that’s in the past now and I can look forward to getting myself into the team and making an impression. I want to help the team to get wins and get points because that’s what I came here to do.”
This weekend the team is in Betfred Cup action, as they welcome Dundee to Easter Road, looking for the victory that would allow them to leapfrog James McPake’s side and progress safely into the knockout stages of the competition.
But while injury curtailed his involvement in earlier group games, coming off against Cove Rangers and sitting out the Forfar trip with a groin strain, and a thigh strain limited him at the outset of the league campaign, he says it would be a mistake to to use them as an excuse, and maintains he will need to improve on his contributions when he does play if he is to hold down as starting place.
“I wouldn’t put it all on it being stop-start,” stressed the 25-year-old Englishman. “I’m my own biggest critic and I know myself that I am not performing as well as I can, to put it simply. It has not been ideal but football is a game of ups and downs and it can change very quickly. All you can do is work hard and hopefully things will change soon so I’m not too down about it.”
