We will fight and scrap, says Holloway
Saturday 19 March 2011
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has insisted his players remain determined ahead of today's trip to Blackburn Rovers, despite a run of one win in nine matches.
Holloway's side are locked on 32 points with Blackburn, one point above the relegation zone, with games against Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United to come before the end of the season.
"What we want to do is keep our status," the 48-year-old said. "We won't like relinquishing the fact we are a Premier League side. We want to fight and scrap. You have to want it more than the opposition, and my team have done that."
