Southgate: 'We Had To Be Men'!

Last updated : 13 April 2009 By Boro Mad

Gareth Southgate: "I thought our work ethic was brilliant today.

"We had to be men, we had to stand up and answer some questions that were being posed internally and thrown at us externally.

"We have give ourselves hope now. We are still in there fighting and you just never know.

"The reason it was a must-win game was because of the impact it would have on the other teams at the bottom, Hull being one of them.

"It was a crucial win and I think the players deserved it.

"If the season ends tomorrow we are down, so we have less to lose now.

"We are looking upwards. Can we get back into the race? Possibly we have now.

"There is still a huge amount to do but maybe other teams have got something to lose and, frankly, we haven't."
