HARRY Kewell has outlined the high demands he places on everyone at Oldham Athletic, and not just his players.

The Latics boss is now over six months into his role at Boundary Park. And while he is seeing progress from the squad he has assembled, he feels there is plenty more to come in the second half of the season.

But Kewell insists his targets will only be reached if everyone is pulling in the same direction, and all pulling their weight.

"My target is just to win. We want to win, we're a team that wants to play the right way, we want to play football, we want to put in good performances, we want to have high energy, we want to have discipline, we want to have commitment, and that's not only from my players, it's from my coaching staff, from my medical staff, it's from everyone in the club," he said.

"We want to have a high standard, and if we can have that it gives us more of a chance to win."

And Kewell feels those good habits will breed the consistency that they need to climb the League Two ladder and get the run of results that he craves.

"Again, consistency only comes with hard work and everyone doing their job, and that's not just the players, it's everyone that's associated with the club, even the fans," said the Latics chief.

"We've all got to be a part of this, we've got to have the right commitment to get this club to where it should be."

Increased versatility among his players is also an area that Kewell is keen to focus on in the remainder of the campaign.

The 42-year-old has signed players, including the likes of Marcel Hilssner, based on their potential to fill more than one role as he looks to generate strength in depth among his squad.

Hilssner, for example, is an attacking midfielder but the 26-year-old has demonstrated his defensive capabilities too since arriving from Coventry last month on loan until the end of the season.

"If you look at some of the greatest teams in the world, let's just take the Barcelona team for example, when they play a normal 4-4-2 or 4-3-3, their midfielders can play left, right or in the centre. It's about knowing your role but being able to adapt," said Kewell.

"I'm not saying that you sit there for 60-70 minutes but you may have to adapt for five minutes.

"Every manager would love to be able to have a connection like that in midfield where, if you find you find yourself on the left side you know you're covered on the right side.

If you find yourself holding and you need to go up top, you want that connection with your players.

"I think great players can adjust and be adaptive."
