Kenny Jackett: Still retains hope of reaching play-offs

Kenny Jackett: Still retains hope of reaching play-offs

The Lions have slipped down the table since the turn of the year but picked up their first league win since January 1 when they defeated Middlesbrough 2-1 on Saturday evening.

A second victory over Boro this season lifted the Lions back up to 13th, eight points adrift of the top six.

"After the defeats we've had in the league it was a very good win for us and excellent to get a double over a team like Middlesbrough," said Jackett.

"There are a lot of games to come and anything is possible. The spirit we had was good and we will be looking to move on from the victory in a positive way now.

"We will need a real good run like we had earlier in the season to get up there, but we will see what happens."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
