Defender Connor Goldson has admitted that Sheffield United 'did a number on us' but he remains confident that we can get ourselves out of the mess that we are in when it comes to the league campaign.
Speaking to the Official Site Goldson explained that he was confident the team could pick up the eight wins we have identified as a means of securing our League One status from the 16 games that remain.
'The players were all fuming after the game. Mike has come in and given us all a positive talk saying we need to stick together. It's not like there are three games left, we've got 16 remaining and enough points to play for. We're not relegation already, we're no where near it. If we can get a few wins, I'm we'll get out of it.'
Goldson goes on to say that there are a number of teams around us in the same boat, and all we have to do is pick up the points to get our noses out in front of them and an aim of winning half of the games remaining is not too much to ask of themselves as players.
The 21 year old continues and admits that the goals we conceded last weekend were sloppy, and he knows we can't start that slowly against Port Vale in our next clash. We have to come out of the blocks quickly, and do all we can to get ourselves the early lead and give us something to hang on to as the game progresses.
'It's a massive game. The fans won't be happy but they'll be 100% behind us in a local derby. We've got 20 players in that dressing room all wanting to give their best. We're desperate for a win, hopefully that'll be on Saturday.'
One win would probably catapult us out of the relegation zone, two wins on the bounce could have us practically midtable at least for appearance sakes, so the players certainly can't be resigned to anything. There is time left, but all the teams at the bottom - to be honest in the bottom half - will be telling themselves the same things so it vital we get those wins sooner rather than later.
