All to play four

Posted on 23 April 2012  - 18:05

Harry Redknapp feels we'll have to win our remaining four matches to secure a place in the top four of the Premier League.

All to play four

Newcastle leapfrogged us into fourth place after beating Stoke 3-0 on Saturday and stayed there after our 1-0 loss at QPR.

Arsenal and Chelsea played out a goalless draw in Saturday's early kick-off, so we're now three points adrift of Newcastle and one ahead of Chelsea.

The manager has said all long that he expects 'twists and turns' to the last day and this weekend's fixtures see Arsenal travel to Stoke, Newcastle go to Wigan, Chelsea host QPR and we take on Blackburn at the Lane on Sunday, kick-off 4pm.

After that, we travel to Bolton (May 2) and then Villa (May 6) before our final match against Fuham at the Lane on May 13."We have to pick ourselves up and go again," said Harry.

"We’ve got four games left and we need 12 points. That’s how I see it. We have to win next week against Blackburn and that won’t be easy as they are fighting for their lives.

"It could all change again. Chelsea are playing well, Newcastle have done well, Arsenal go to Stoke. We’ll wait and see.

"There will be more twists and turns, we’ve got to win our last four games and it will be difficult, but we’re capable of doing that. We’re not giving up. We’ve still got a big chance."
