Manager Ian Holloway has called on the team to make the most of home advantage in the run in this season, starting with Watford this weekend.

Speaking to the official site following on from our back to back victories over Nottingham Forest and Wigan Athletic, we are now two points from safety and victory this weekend could make a huge difference to the look of the table.

‘We’re on our own patch and we have to use this to our advantage. We will again be trying to play good football and get another vital win, knowing there is very little margin for error in terms of the points we can afford to drop.’

Holloway goes on to praise the fans and once again call on them to do all they can to help the boys over the line because part of the last two victories he believes is that the player’s have started to play without ‘fear’ of making mistakes, and he wants that to continue at The Den with the fans backing them at every point and letting them be at their best.

‘We still have a mountain to climb but we’ve now given ourselves a fighting chance of reaching that summit. We need to be ‘fear free’ again on Saturday and if we are we can get another vital result against a team who are very capable of passing you off the pitch if you let them.’

Club skipper Paul Robinson has also talked about how the team have to make the most of their remaining home matches this season and give the home crowd a good end to the season following the disappointments of this campaign.

‘Now really is the time to make home advantage count. Back to back away wins have been excellent for morale and confidence, but they would have been in vain if we don’t manage to build on them not just on Saturday, but also against Doncaster and Bournemouth.’

Robinson says that the team will simply keep taking things ‘one match’ at a time because we can’t get ahead of ourselves or think that at any stage we have done enough to ensure survival because every remaining game is an opportunity to not only secure that but for us to go into next season on a bigger high should survival be achieved.

‘It’s important not to get caught up in the permutations, that can act as a distraction and it’s imperative that our only focus is on earning three points against Watford before turning our thoughts to Middlesbrough. There’s five games left and 15 points to play for.’
