Neil Harris' programme notes:

What we can't do is feel sorry for ourselves.

There were some strong and positive words in the dressing room from myself and senior players after the (Fulham) game and there remains an excellent camaraderie and drive within this group to succeed.

I've reminded the lads collectively and individually how good they've been up to this stage and what good characters and professionals they are on and off the pitch.

We have to embrace what's still to come and give everything going into these final three games.

I want the lads to attack the matches with vigour and try and play with an air of freedom as to create chances.

Enjoy the game tonight.
