Petrov Not Concerned With Tiredness

Petrov Not Concerned With Tiredness

Stiliyan Petrov has said that the team will not let tiredness get in the way of either our replay again Palace or more importantly the Carling Cup Final.

Speaking on the Official Site Petrov said the team were unconcerned that they faced two big games in the space of five days and were focused on progressing in the FA Cup and given ourselves the best shot in the Carling Cup Final against Manchester United.

'I was delighted to stay in the competition at the weekend. We just knew it was going to be very hard but we battled.

'If we have to play another game to get through in this competition, we will play it.'

I know Petrov really can't say much else, after all there's no way he or anyone else associated with the club would bemoan the fixture list given we are potentially on our way to two finals, but I do love the attitude.

This season we have really gone for silverware and not only do we fans deserve the boost it would bring, but the team do aswell. Yeah some of the games haven't been the best, others have been phenomenal. But we don't roll over and die as we saw against Palace and that kind of belief within the squad deserves to see them pick up some real plaudits.

There's no better way of doing that than starting to pick up some wins in the league again and getting ourselves a double trip to Wembley.

he has been important for us this season, he has looked dead on his feet at times but seems to keep going and seems to want to always be playing. Good attitude as you say.

No disrespect to Burnley but it could be a ideal chance to rest a couple of them this week.
