Two Wins And Fingers Crossed For Boro!

Last updated : 13 May 2009 By Boro Mad
Stewart Downing: "We just have to win our next two games, it's simple, and rely on what else goes on around us.

"Newcastle are on 34 now - we have got to rely on others as well, but there is no hiding the fact we need to win the next two games.

"There's a slim chance, but there is still a chance. If we beat Aston Villa and see what happens on the weekend's results, that will paint a clearer picture for us.

"But it was disappointing to lose because I genuinely thought we would win last night.

"It is horrible, considering the way we played in the first half. But it is not just over this game, the manager has said before it is over the 36 games that we haven't done it.

"It's not just about this game, we haven't done it at the start of the season, in the middle of the season, and that's why we are in the position we are in."
