The Teessiders find themselves seven points shy of the play-offs after a disastrous run of 12 defeats in 16 Championship games, during which time they have accumulated just eight points.

However, Steele insists neither Mowbray nor his players have given up hope of a fightback into contention.

He told the Northern Echo: "You can tell every time you speak to him that he is hurting.

"Everybody is hurting because we all wanted this to happen. We all wanted promotion. He is trying his hardest to turn things around.

"There is still a glimmer of hope there and we are more than capable of winning the next five games, even though we have not shown that in recent months."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
