Having already named Birmingham as a must win game, manager Ian Holloway was left devastated at full time as we lost last night.

Speaking to the official site following the three two loss, the gaffer said that despite missing out on points again, he did remain confident that we could avoid the drop as long as we kept battling away.

‘There has been some frank and honest words said in that dressing room and the players are hurting, believe me. I’m sick and fed up of seeing the same thing. We get a chance, we miss it, and they go up the other end and score. If that continues then it isn’t very good but we all know that.’

It was almost a double blow from the noted six pointer as other results in the league also went against us on the night and the gaffer wasn’t hiding how bad the league table and our chances now look.

Bottom of the pile with even Yeovil ahead of us on goal difference simply has to be a wake up call for the players. The bottom three are all level on points, we aren’t adrift of them, but we are adrift of others above us now and both Barnsley and Charlton have games in hand so to be sensible we have to look at 20th placed Doncaster as a position guaranteed to be safe and we are eight points behind them.

‘We have eight games left and 24 points to play for. We probably need to win five but I believe we can do it because with the chances we’re created we’ve got people to score them.’

The disappointing thing for Ollie is that having seen us score two, the very least we should’ve come away with was a point and again he can’t credit their efforts and all we can do is keep going and keep plugging away in the hope that the points we need come.

‘To be perfectly honest this is a fantastic opportunity to show what we are all about, as I’ve just told them, everybody will write us off now but not me, and not us. It’s all about actions now.’
