Rafa Benitez has just given his press conference for the very vital game at home on Monday night against Preston where a win would almost guarantee us a promotion place this season.
Indeed if the Terriers don’t win at Fulham tomorrow and we get all 3 points against Preston we will be promoted.
I just wish the players would put us out of our misery and get the points on the board – after all our fans have been through hell and high water for a number of years now.
The good news is that it looks like Ciaran Clark could start on Monday night although Dwight Gayle is not fit.
Rafa Benitez – gave press conference
Here’s some of what Rafa said:
“When you have players coming back from injuries it’s good news for us. The competition increases.”
“We have to do our job. The only thing we can control is our team. We have to concentrate.”
“My message from the first training session this week was the same – concentrate on our job.”
“Keep supporting the team, stick together & we will be stronger. The fans are so loyal, so important for us”
“It is very clear to be calm. That is my message from the first training session this week.” “Concentrate and we can beat anyone.'”
“It would be nice to clinch promotion at home but other teams must do something to help. We can only do our own job”
“We have 3 games left in our mini league. Maybe we expected to get more points from the last games. Mistakes cost us”
“If we go up, then in 6 months time no-one will remember a blip. We are in the driving seat and we just need to stay focused”
“Promotion, it depends on us. Not social media or the newspapers or websites.”
“Congratulations to Brighton and to Chris Hughton. Well done to them. We need to go up, it doesn’t matter in what position.”
Very gpod stuff from Rafa there and a bit of class congratulating Chris and the Seagulls.
Howay The Lads!!
