On loan Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah has said that the loanees are well up for the fight of keeping Notts County from relegation this season.

Speaking to the Official Site the striker admitted that loan spells usually are very selfish because it’s the chance for a player to shine with an eye to impressing their parent clubs, but he believes that two can go hand in hand because as well as shining themselves, the players have brought into what the club want to do and the best way for this to be a successful loan spell on an individual basis is by playing their part in getting the club winning consistently.

Appiah has made three appearances since joining the club so far, but has yet to taste victory, and that’s something he desperately wants to do.

‘It still affects you because at the end of the day you’re playing for that club and you’ve got to give your all for that team. If I didn’t, I know I’d soon find out about it but I want to be part of this fight here. It hurts me to lose as well but as a loan player you’ve got to add a bit more to it and show why you’ve been brought in. Hopefully we can all pull together to get us out of it.’

Appiah goes on in the interview to make his ‘loanee’ comments, and restates that the only way he’ll look good is if the team are doing well, and he’s determined to play his part in helping us to get out of this situation because he appreciates that both manager Shaun Derry and assistant Greg Abbott have given him a great opportunity by bringing him to the club and obviously have placed a lot of faith in him in doing so.
