He told the media, “It’s in the back of our minds, but the next game is the only way we can work for the rest of the season. We’ve got to focus on that, get our bodies right, get our minds right and keep going.

“Bournemouth will be looking for a reaction, so we know that’ll be coming. We played them here and they gave us a tough game, and we know the quality they possess and we will have to be right on it again. We’ll pick ourselves up, recover well, and analyse with the coaching staff how we can hurt them.”

And does he think they’ve got enough to stay in the league?

“I look in the dressing room…” he said. “And the boys I’ve been with for a long time now and I know the quality what’s in there, and it’s about sticking together as a group and, in my mind, we’re more than capable of getting ourselves out.”
