Never say die

Darren Bent has hailed the never-say-die attitude running through the team at the moment after we came from behind to avoid defeat for the second time in the space of a week.

The striker set up Roman Pavlyuchenko for a dramatic winner in our 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday having netted in our 4-4 draw with Arsenal the previous Wednesday.

And with spirits high after claiming seven points from our last three games, Darren believes we have become much harder to beat since the start of the season.

"The gaffer seems to be able to work these miracles, get the players playing and believing that we can win games," he said.

"At the start of the season we didn't seem to have any backbone, we were getting beat far too easily and conceding too many easy goals.

"But we're never resigning ourselves to losing at the moment, and even if we go behind we still feel we can get goals and win games.

"At one point, morale at the training ground was really low, but now we've got a new lease of life and it's showing in our performances."

Although Darren did not find the net on Saturday, he currently has six goals to his name for the season so far.

He added: "I always knew that, if given a chance, I would put the ball in the net. But we've had more important things on our mind like getting off the bottom of the table."
