"A few people raised their eyebrows as to whether I could perform at this level but hopefully, I'd like to think that I've proven a few people wrong," said Turner.

"But to make this year even more special it's vital that we retain our Premier League status. Hopefully by the end of the weekend we'll have achieved that."
