Gio's target

Giovani Dos Santos believes nothing is beyond us as we prepare to fight back from two goals down against Shakhtar Donetsk to keep our UEFA Cup hopes alive.

The Mexican forward was part of the side defeated in Ukraine a week ago but feels it could be a different story altogether in tonight's return leg at The Lane.

'Gio' recognises the talent Shakhtar possess but hopes familiar surroundings can benefit us in front of our own fans.

And he also sees this as an opportunity to impress in what he describes as a massive game for the Club.

"I think we have every chance to win the game with the confidence we have as a team and we need our fans to play their part as they always do," said 'Gio'.

"It's good that we are back at home where the pitch will be much more suited to our style of play than it was out there. If we play at our best, we can turn this tie around.

"Anything can happen in this competition and we want to show the rest of Europe what we are made of in this game.

"Shakhtar are a very good team technically with a lot of talented Brazilian players, but they have weaknesses that we can exploit.

"For me, it's a great opportunity to impress in a big game. I'm fit and ready and want to give something back to the fans."
