'If It's Football, It's Vital'

It's Not Holiday Time Yet

A bit of a battle cry from Martin O'Neill today as we head into the Fulham game.

Speaking on the official site, O'Neill admitted that he is still angered by our previous visit to Craven Cottage which we lost and he wants us to put that right this time round.

'We played there last season and it was a disappointment. It was a game we should have won.

'We were leading 1-0 with not too long left - and eventually we got beaten in the match. The very least we should have got was a draw.

'This season, Fulham are challenging near the top and they have plenty to play for - like ourselves. It's certainly got the makings of a good game.

'We will go there with our normal philosophy. Our away record this season has been exemplary and we will go there and try to win. Simple as that.'

O'Neill also spoke at length about whether or not our season was over considering we are out of the race for a Top 4 spot. In his mind the season is far from over and he's determined we will do everything we can to secure 5th place at the very least.

'We are fifth in the league and we want to stay there as we head into the final three games of the season.

'The incentives are certainly there. We finished on 60 points last season and we want to surpass that this time around. We finished sixth and obviously it would be great to finish one place higher than that this season. We have plenty to play for and it's certainly not holiday time yet.'
