Dougie To Learn From Last Season's Mistakes

Dougie To Learn From Last Season's Mistakes

Dougie Freedman has admitted to making mistakes last year, and he's determined to put them right this time round.

Speaking to yourlocalguardian Dougie explained that a lack of rotation ultimately cost us our end of season form after a bright start, and something Dougie will address.

'Where I got it wrong last year is that I consistently played the same sort of team. In the last quarter of the season we had a lot of injuries and we slipped down the table. I need to be a little wiser in my selection. I made three or four changes to the team that beat Charlton for the match against Nottingham, so don't be surprised if I change it again.'

Not only is Dougie admitting he'll rotate to rest players, but also by giving other players a chance the competition elements should push the team that little bit further aswell, which can only be good in the long term.
