'If It's Football, It's Vital'

How The Managers Saw It

'Pool boss Ian Holloway felt the pressure of the playoff chase got to his side last night as they crashed to a 3-0 defeat against playoff rivals Sheffield United.

The manager said: 'It looked like my players started to think about the results and where we might end up, and you cannot do that. That is not their job. It is the job of the fans to look at results and tables.

'Conceding after 42 seconds wasn't part of the plan but after that I thought we got the ball and stayed composed - apart from in the final third.

'You have to say overall they did better in both boxes than we did.

'The last two results haven't done us any favours whatsoever. We have got nine games left - it can change again just as quickly.

'We've got to keep producing what we do week in, week out.

'Whatever the score is, you have to keep going and you find out how good you are at the end of the season. You cannot start looking at results.

'You have to go through the process of playing, that is all that matters.

'If we keep letting three goals in like we have in the last two games we won't have a chance.'

Meanwhile Blades coach Gary Speed was obviously pleased with the result:

'The credit has got to go to the players and the performance was fantastic.'

However, Speed admitted that the Blades will have to improve their away form to stand any chance of making the top six:

'We need to get a result away from home. It is obviously mental; the sooner we change that the better and the boys can take a lot of heart out of this result.'
