Ian Holloway Praises Saints

Ian Holloway Praises Saints

Ian Holloway knows that his team faces a stern test at Bloomfield Road tomorrow evening against a league-leading Saints team who are chasing back-to-back promotions.

He says that where as his team has had to fight off the depression felt after relegation, Saints still have the same high spirits of having won promotion last season.

The bad taste that he left after his makeshift side lost to us in the cup last year has been replaced with a feeling that maybe Ian Holloway can relate to our success.

He said talking about Nigel Adkins, "If Nigel Adkins takes them up for a second successive year it will be a fantastic job and I will congratulate him.'

"They haven`t done it yet, though.' He added.

Whether this is part of his mind games or not we know that we face a hard game against a team on the fringes of the play-off zone.

We have succeeded in maintaining a high level of consistency to date this season as Ian noted, and hopefully we will still be in high spirits with another job well done come Sunday morning.
