Holloway: We Showed Courage

20 April 2013

Ian Holloway left a disappointed dressing room to attend the post match press conference and reflected on a poor goal that gave away the lead for a second time in the game. 

"The mood in the dressing room is one of disappointment especially after being ahead twice and I was not happy with the manner of the second goal. The point though does keep them away from us and even though we would have preferred two more, you have got to take what you can and we did. 

"I was impressed with the courage of the lads, we scored two and it was nervy but we stuck together. We must eradicate the mistakes and get on with it and see what happens."

The boss changed things around today and was pleased to see the goal drought come to an end.  

"It was a relief to get the goal and our front two worked hard. I changed things around today and we went back to basics, I was pleased with Aaron Wilbraham who was unlucky not to get a goal but the lads all gave us something to believe in and we showed the fans we really care and want to get in the play offs."

As expected it really is going to the wire and Ian is making it clear that it is about what we do and not to worry about others.  

"It wasn't a pretty affair but at this stage of the season it is not about that. It's about the mindset, if we had won ten in a row we would have been happy but now in this position because we have been in the play off frame for some time people are disappointed. At the start of today we could have gone five points above Leicester and if that is not good enough I don't know what is after this club finished 17th last season. 

"It's a roller coaster, we just have to get on with it and there is a lot of talk about who we are competing with for the play offs but we have to just get on with what we are doing and make sure from the final three games we can get in them.  It's an exciting time and we have it in our own hands so we need to tweak the nose of fear and stick an ice cube down the vest of terror."
