On The Easter Period 

"We were poor at Forest, there's no question about it - we didn't get going at all. After a good performance at Stoke on Friday, Monday seemed like it was too far for the players. We've got two games left, two games we have to win, and it's brilliant. It's a case of keeping them going and keeping them focused."

On The Last Two Games 

"Saturday is a must-win game and we have to be positive. We have to give it a right go and it's still all to play for. We have the opportunity and the players have to grasp it. They have to go out and there get the results we need." 

On The Players 

"They've been good. There was a real disappointment after the performance on Monday (against Forest), and nobody feels that more than the players. We've got players playing out of position, we got stretched and we got pulled around."
