Last Home Match For Youngy

Last updated : 25 April 2008 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Speaking the Bournemouth Evening Echo, Neil Young is quoted as saying: "On one hand, I'm looking forward to it. But, on the other, I'm not. It's going to be emotional for me and I'm just glad to be involved. It looked doubtful a couple of weeks ago because I was injured but I've been on the bench for the past three games so hopefully I can do the same again. But it's not about this being my last home game because there are a lot more important things riding on it and I will be focused on getting the three points like the rest of the lads. I know what it's like to be relegated and it's not something you want to experience in your career. When we went down before, we didn't have that much of a chance on the last day of the season but it still wasn't impossible. To get relegated and know you had a chance is gutting so I wouldn't want any of the lads to go through that and hopefully we won't have to. We've come a long way from where we were a month ago. If we were to go down after putting up such a good fight, I think the lads would be more distraught than a month ago when we looked dead and buried. We had been written off so the lads deserve a lot of credit for getting on with the job and concentrating on our performances on the pitch. We've got nothing to be worried about going into the game. I'm led to believe our form since Christmas has been better than Swansea and they've just been promoted. It's a shame we didn't have that form at the start of the season but it's not over yet".
