Mel - No Fear Ahead Of Man City Trip

Mel - No Fear Ahead Of Man City Trip

Head coach Pepe Mel has said that the Albion team should not be fazed by their trip to the Etihad Stadium when we face Manchester City in our next game.

Mel told wba.co.uk that he felt the team could take a lot of confidence and belief from the way we played and performed against Tottenham Hotspur in our last game so he sees no reason why we should be anxious or nervous ahead of the City match.

'The biggest job now that the technical team has is to lift the players. The players have done well and they deserve to have more points. We don't consider we will lose to Manchester City. We also have two very important home games against West Ham and Stoke and an extremely important trip to Sunderland. If we keep doing things in the vain we have then things will go for us.'

Mel says that having lost only one of our last five games should be a real source of confidence also for the team as we head into the run in, and with us having a good goal difference and also a game in hand, it really is everything to play for in terms of building the three point gap we currently have on the teams in the dropzone.

'We feel we need four more points.'

And it's in our own hands, which is something Liam Ridgewell echoed in another interview.

'It's very tight and I think it's been like that for a couple of weeks now. Everyone has been dragged back into it - teams who probably thought they were safe. But it's in our own hands and we've got to make sure we pick up the points to make sure we're safe.'

Ridgewell was asked if one more win would do it for us, and he said that he'd prefer another two or three really so that we did finish the season on a high and give the fans something to really cheer about, as the 29 year old admitted he knew it hadn't been good enough this season and also again that the team were disappointed with the draw against Spurs because of the way we let the lead slip.
