Odoffin fully focused on securing Premiership status

Defensive midfielder Hakeem Odoffin believes now is not the time to reflect on his recent performances with his focus fully on securing Premiership status for the side next season.

Speaking after signing his new contract with the club. He said: “I am not looking back too much; the focus has to be on what is to come.

“We are in a very important point of the season; we have big games coming up and we want to get as many points as possible.

“The end of the season is the time to look back and pick out highlights. Right now it is all about getting the results to secure premiership status.”

Odoffin believes his time at Accies has helped him to improve considerably as a player.

He said: “This year has been all about learning for me. I am trying to pick up what I can and improve. This season I have played in some new positions all of which have required me to learn as a player. That is a challenge which I have enjoyed.”

With seven games remaining in the season the midfielder believes the Accies squad have the quality to build on their recent performances.

He said: “We know every game is going to be a battle and we have to be up for it. I think we are up for it, every training session you can feel the hunger and desire from the lads and it’s a great environment to be in as a player.

“We have been taking this hunger and desire into matches and I think we have the quality to keep performing to that level between now and the end of the season.”

Despite signing in the summer Odoffin is yet to play in front of the Accies fans. However, with the extension of his stay in Lanarkshire the midfielder hopes he will be able to soon.

He said: “This season has been tough for everyone but hopefully soon this will all be behind us and next season we can get back playing football with the fans in the stadium.”
