Woody - 'Work to be done'

Jonathan Woodgate hopes last night's win over Hull can spark a revival of our season but knows there is room for improvement.

The defender netted his first goal of the campaign at the KC Stadium to take a vital three points in our push for Premier League survival.

But after Aaron Lennon had given us a 17th minute lead, another defensive lapse at a set-piece gifted the hosts an equaliser, leaving it to ‘Woody' to rise to the rescue late on.

So if we are to keep picking up crucial points as the season continues, last night's hero knows there is still work to be done.

"Our league status is more important than anything. We needed three points and we got it," said Jonathan.

"It was a game we had to go and win. Fair play to Hull, they battled well, but we got the goal and deserved the victory.

"I hope this brings about a turnaround, but we have to stop conceding silly goals. Set-pieces are something we'll continue to work on at training because we have to start keeping clean sheets now.

"We need to win as many games as we can. Middlesbrough are up next in the league and that's not going to be easy because they're fighting for their lives as well.

"But on our day, I feel we can beat anyone, as we've shown in the past."
