With the team having been ensconced in and around the dead wood for most of the season, Oba Martins has demanded the troops pull themselves out of the dross and rise up the table in the next few weeks. Speaking to the Ronnie, the Nigerian striker said:

“We want to be out of the relegation spots. And we know that getting three points is going to help us achieve this. We have shown we are good players and we have picked up some good results. But the table doesn`t show that. That`s why we need to get out of the relegation area.

We have some confidence now. Middlesbrough have lost some games, but they are a good side, and they`ve got good players. But we can`t think of that too much – this is the Premier League and all teams have good players.”
