Hoddle : Losing Not An Option

Hoddle : Losing Not An Option

Glenn Hoddle was realistic in hos asessment of the task ahead of his men when he spoke to the clubs official site earlier today.

He also revealed that far from being disheartend by last weekends result the camp is in bouyant mood ahead of Saturdays clash with Plymouth

"When we looked back at the video it showed that we made three mistakes, which cost us goals, other than that Stefan hasn't had a save to make and their goalkeeper probably came out as Man or the Match. There is a story behind the result but we have now got to go down to Plymouth and pick a side that's going to go out and get three points."

"We went eight games without losing and we've now lost a game but the pattern when that has happened over the course of the season has been that we've bounced back pretty quickly, so we'll be looking to do that again.

"Preston have got some tough fixtures ahead of them but what we have to ensure is that we are still in there putting them under that pressure for the remainder of the season.

'We've got to win matches, it's as simple as that,' said Hoddle

'We must win four of them, and that plus two draws might be enough to do it.

'If we win them all it would be a marvellous feat but who knows? If Cardiff and Preston lose matches then the ratio would be able to change.

'Palace could always lose three games, and so they're not totally out of reach, and all in all there's a lot of enthusiasm about the place because there's still a lot to play for.'

Many fans are already looking forward to Easter Monday, and Wolves tie with Preston.

But the Wolves boss has words of caution for those tempted to get too far ahead of themelves.

'We've still got three matches to play before we face them, and so it will be teed up by the way those games pan out,' he says.

'If we lose three and they win three then the game could be immaterial but if those results turn the other way around then it could be a smashing match.'

Can Hoddles men step up to the plate and not be found wanting? Come five o'clock on Saturday the world will finally know.
