Here to win

The message is loud and clear from Harry Redknapp and Fraizer Campbell in Nijmegen: 'We're here to win'.

Victory in our third UEFA Cup Group D match against NEC Nijmegen will go a long way to securing our place in the knockout stages with a home match to go against Spartak Moscow and the top three teams progressing to the last 32.

NEC will prove tough opponents especially at their McDos Goffertstadion, where they remain unbeaten in league action this season. They were also 2-1 up with 15 minutes to go of their opening UEFA Cup group match in Dinamo Zagreb, only to lose 3-2.

While boss Harry rightly states that the Premier League is his top priority, he's determined to maintain our fine form so far under his management.

"We want to win every game and we will try to win this game," said Harry. "We want to stay in this competition but we have to be honest, the league is most important to us.

"We've had a good run and we have to keep that run going."

Striker Fraizer, who also faced the media in a pre-match briefing on Wednesday, added: "We've not come here to play for a draw, we've come here to win.

"That's what Harry has brought into the club - belief in the players and the belief that we can go out there and win every game."
