Saturday's 2-1 defeat to Watford left Wanderers without a win in the npower Championship since the turn of the year, fifth bottom and three points above third-bottom Barnsley - albeit with a game in hand.

"I don't think that way and anyone who wants to help the club shouldn't think that way either," said Whites boss Freedman when asked about relegation.

"I'm more concerned about us winning games of football. We're not far away from these teams.

"We just need that little bit of luck. I've been here 1,000 times as a player and a manager. We've got the qualities in the squad to springboard us up the league.

"We're in a difficult moment where we feel everything is going against us. We'll regroup, we stand together and we'll springboard up, no problem."

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
