Fitness Levels Concern Wise

Last updated : 04 November 2006 By Kevin Markey
Wise was concerned about fitness levels however, saying: "I look at the fitness side and I am not too pleased. We did a bit of running with a certain number of players and they struggled, really struggled. That concerns me.

"It means we can't just work, work, work with the players because without the base of fitness, it knocks them out.

"I have spoken to a good friend of ours, an Italian fitness coach, and we are working out how we can add things to training sessions to bring the players' level of fitness up.

"Technically, they are very good. It is just keeping it going and closing people down."
