We can do this

11 April 2014

Big team effort on Saturday

Lions chairman John Berylson says the wins against Nottingham Forest and Wigan over the past week have breathed new life into The Lions' bid to stave off the threat of relegation.

He said: "The response of Ollie and the players to the disappointment of conceding that late equaliser against Blackburn has been magnificent, but no-one is kidding themselves that the job is anything like done.

We are now in a position where we are still underdogs in the race, but we can see a realistic chance of getting out of the bottom three, providing we keep winning!

Saturday's game is going to be a massive one for us. Our home form has been a big disappointment, not only this season but going right back to January 2013 and I know it has been very hard for our fans to watch at times.

However, the chips are down right now, and we all have to get behind the team more than ever to give them all the help we can in the remaining five games.

Our Championship status was hard-won in 2010 and we are determined not to let go of it without an almighty fight.

We recognise that the next few weeks will be nerve racking, but if we can focus on supporting and encouraging rather than transmitting our own anxieties and frustrations through to the players we can play a massive role."
