Juande Ramos insists tonight's UEFA Cup Group D opener against Udinese is very much dominating his thoughts ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash against Bolton.
The Head Coach's philosophy has always been that the next match is always the most important, whatever the competition, and he reiterated that again at his pre-match media briefing at the Stadio Friuli.
"Udinese is the most important," stated Juande. "Bolton is also important but we have to look at Udinese first and try to get the best possible result.
"If we win, we will be more confident going into the match against Bolton.
"Udinese are second in the Italian championship and they must feel good, the atmosphere must be perfect. They are playing well, they are compact, fast in attack and have good attacking players but we will try to win this match.
"It is a difficult match but if we work hard and play at a good level, it is possible to win."
