Echo Jury: Michael Tuckwell is delighted with three more hard-earned points

Have your say

ANOTHER fantastic result from an otherwise sub-par game but for us it’s not about the entertainment it’s getting the job done and three more points that have (barring us losing every game from now on)secured our top flight status.

After the first quarter of the season, we thought it would have taken an extra two or three months before we were safe.

Now we can truly focus on upcoming games as a push towards the top and even a cup final.

Beating Liverpool is no mean feat. Despite the popular view we were lucky, it took a lot of hard work and the confidence has sky rocketed once again just in time for the trip to finally beat the Goodison hoodoo and make an appearance at Wembley.

Remember, we are theoretically two games away from European football!

Despite the absence of a few key players, the squad depth we have is handling the extra workload well and it will be interesting if he changes it at all.

Colback did an outstanding job and Campbell played well with Bendtner.

It’s hard to believe it’s only 10 games left but we are at the business end and, who knows, we may even improve on 10th – something no one would have thought after Bruce left.
