CLOUGH SAYS PLAYERS ARE FOCUSSED ON FIGHT FOR CHAMPIONSHIP SURVIVAL

28 March 2018

NIGEL Clough says that his team are focussed on getting the points needed for Championship survival.

He said: “The lads have come back. They have had a good break and they are focussed on getting enough points in the last few games.

“It’s about getting that first result and getting a run together.

“Neil Warnock did it with Rotherham a few years ago and we need to get back-to-back wins somewhere and Cardiff is a good place to start on Friday.

“It has to come from everybody. The youngsters have to weigh in as they have done this season. The experienced players are important. But even if they are out injured like Will Miller they have to do their bit and help out.

“We can survive as there are still teams down there for us to catch. We can’t control the results of other teams but there are plenty of teams struggling to win games and that gives us a chance of catching them.”

The manager says his team may need another four wins to get enough points to achieve another season in the Championship but says it’s not beyond them.

“There are eight games left and they are eight winnable games. We will certainly have to win a few of them to stand a chance. We might need to win up to four of the games we have left to play and with a draw or two that might be enough. It won’t be easy, but we know that and that’s the kind of form that we have to pull out of the bag if we are to stand a chance.”
