SHAUN Wright-Phillips has revealed the poisonous atmosphere that rubber-stamped Rs relegation is a thing of the past.

It’s an open secret there were factions in the camp that heaped on the misery, but the former England winger reckons it's a whole new ball game.

“There’s more a sense of togetherness than there was last season,” he said. “I think that spirit showed in the Southend game. We’re all working for each other.

“That togetherness is the most important thing. And when things go wrong it’s important to encourage each other rather than get on peoples’ backs and I think that’s what the spirit is like now.”

Wright-Phillips is expected to start against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday after a five-month lay off caused by a damaged ankle.

The player reckons fans have yet to see the best of him, and no, he hasn’t asked dad Ian Wright for advice on how to finally make good.

“I think it is coming together for me in terms of fitness,” he said.

“I can’t really put my finger on why things haven’t gone well, but I’m old enough to stand on my own two feet now.

“I tend to talk about things more with the other players. We discuss what goes wrong for us and keep it in-house.”
