The Cumbrians are only seven points above the relegation zone after securing just one win from their last eight league matches and Abbott is calling for a repeat of his side's recent victory over Brentford at Brunton Park.

"Home form underpins a lot of what you try to do and if you're picking up points on your own patch you give yourself a real chance," he told the club's official website.

"We picked up a fair bit of criticism for the way things were going here before Christmas, but we seem to have turned that around now.

"We're now into what is a very important period for the club because we need to get the points required to make sure we're at least where we are now for next season. Once that is achieved we can move on from there.

"The win against Brentford was terrific for us and if we can reproduce that type of performance then we will cause Yeovil problems on Saturday."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.

he uber commercialisation of the 90s has led to the point where this overly familar, try hard, jolly hockey sticks type fronts up a major football match on a weekly basis. Unlike the great presenters of yesteryear, I doubt he would even recognise the scent of Brut.
