Edwards - We Remain Confident

Edwards - We Remain Confident

Midfielder Joe Edwards has said that he doesn't believe the confidence of the team has been knocked following on from our 4-1 defeat to Barnsley.

The game against Barnsley might not have dampened spirits but the knowledge that Charlton won one of their games in hand and have already moved slightly clear, with a few games in hand to play, will either foster and never say die attitude that sees us get the results we need, or it's game over given the points we still have to make up on those above us.

Speaking to the Official Site as we gear up for a tough game against Blackpool, Edwards said that confidence was still high and the players were going to go out and do all they can to keep us in the league, irrespective of how unlikely it now feels.

'We know there is still a lot to play for before the end of the season, seven games left and 21 points so it's definitely still all to play for and the boys are confident we can go in to the next couple of games and get two good results and as long as we can keep our confidence up that will help a lot.'

Edwards goes on to say that the knowledge of Charlton's victory was a very disappointing result for the club, but we have of course still got to play them ourselves and that match could now be absolutely key if other results and our results go our way.

'As long as we do as much as we can between now and the end of the season we'll just have to see where that takes us.'

Next up obviously is Blackpool, and with them being within reach as Edwards describes it, we have to focus on ensuring a return of all three points as if we can win this one, that really would give some hope back.

It would be nice if Blackpool tried to end this game with eight men and we took it one nil again, but Edwards knows it won't be the same game as they are under new management now and of course we will be in front of their fans which could give them an additional edge that we have to cope with.
