Sammy (photograph taken above by Paul Willatts) said: “I think we had been due to give one team a hiding. We had a chat three weeks ago with the management and since then we have trained so well. You could see that with our performance against Portsmouth. When someone was beaten we had another player there to back them up. Coventry was probably our best performance, but we came through a sticky spell against Portsmouth and took our chances.

“We are getting better and better now. It has been working well playing three central midfielders because we are dominating the play and getting in the faces of other teams. We are looking up the table now and not down. The management deserve credit because they tell us all we need to know during the week to make sure our performances are right. They have been brilliant and they deserve a lot of praise.”

“Michael is on fire at the moment and he was unplayable against Portsmouth,” said Sammy. “Every time he comes off the pitch he has battered the two centre backs and they always know that they have been in a game. He does not give them a minute’s peace. When he gets a chance one-on-one he will put it in the net and it was a fantastic goal that he scored against Portsmouth.”
