Doyle in interview: We’ve got to keep our heads

Kevin Doyle has talked to E&S about the upcoming game against Birmingham. He praises and hopes for the supporters to stay behind the team.

We’ve had an extremely difficult run of games and now we’ve got a couple against teams around us in the table. But Birmingham is not going to be easy either. They’ve had a good couple of results themselves.

It’s a massive game for us – it’s still early in the season to suggest it’s vitally important but we need to make up for having played Arsenal and Chelsea which were always going to be difficult. It’s given other teams around us the chance to pick up points but we have to look at this as our opportunity now with two home games. It’s still very tight and one win could be massive for us.

Our problem was that we had three draws which were good results from the matches but got us nowhere. One win could get us out of the bottom three and put someone else in there. We’ve got to keep our heads. We’ve had two very difficult games and other teams will have those but without writing off these next two games we’re at home and have more of a chance of winning. Birmingham will be a very difficult game, we know that. They came up with Wolves last year and have been fighting for their lives as well.

The fans have been brilliant through these last two games. I was sitting in the stand on Saturday and they were the loudest of the two sets of fans even at 4-0 down. They understand and realise what it was like, we were playing Chelsea, and we could have been Wigan – that puts things into perspective. We need them behind us again on Sunday whatever happens. If we go behind we can still come back and win. We’ll stay positive and if the crowd can do the same and stay behind us as they have been it will be a massive help.
