"It says a lot that we are still in contention because it has been difficult this season. We have had to concentrate on ourselves on the pitch because so many things have been happening off it, injuries and things that are out of our hands. It's credit to the whole squad for coming through the difficult periods. We've been unnoticed at times in the league race and we have kept going in the Champions League. It's down to the spirit and togetherness at the club. We just need to carry it on for another month."
