Edwards - We Need Semi Final Atmopshere

Edwards - We Need Semi Final Atmopshere

Midfielder Joe Edwards has called on the fans to recreate the atmosphere we saw in the second leg of the play off semi final when we overturned a one nil defeat in the first leg against Sheffield United to reach Wembley, for when we face Huddersfield Town on Monday evening.

Speaking to the Official Site as focus now turned to a true six pointer in our next match, Edwards said.

'The fans have been with us the whole season and you can't fault them, they've been home and away. If we can create an atmosphere sort of like that Sheffield United game that would be brilliant and it would give the lads a boost. Hopefully we can put in a performance like that and get the result on Monday.'

Edwards goes on to say that not only would the victory on Monday do us the world of good potentially in terms of cutting that gap that exists between us and the positions of safety, he feels that should we get we'll also get the bonus of them putting additional pressure on others club who will be worried that maybe we will hit a run of form that sees us kick on in the remaining matches, and that added nervousness for them, could help them slip up and make our lives easier.

'Seeing the effort here no one believes that we're down yet so we'll give that 100% every game and if we get that win on Monday it gives us every chance. Maybe a few teams who thought we were dead and buried may start looking at us and getting a bit nervous.'

Edwards isn't the only one giving a little bit of a rallying call ahead of the game, John Fry and Gary Johnson have also been calling for the same.

Chairman John Fry said himself.

'We have been playing great football for much of the season without getting the breaks. Against Huddersfield we must get behind the team and the management who have been magnificent all season. Around 9000 came to watch us against Sheffield United in what fans must have considered a big, big game. Well this match is even bigger and we need a great atmosphere to give the lads every chance.'

Fry goes on to say that in his opinion they all deserve every chance as well for the work they have put in this season and whilst it might be unlikely we must keep fighting.

Johnson said.

'With three games still left to play and nine points still to play for, we must believe as a management team, as players and as supporters, that it's still possible. Depending on how other results go it may not even need three wins.'

The gaffer does acknowledge however that it will certainly require two wins, and we must get them in the next two matches so we can capitalise on any other slip ups, and that alone makes Monday absolutely massive for the club and he feels the game is now the biggest and most important in our history.
