Parker exclusive on Facebook

Scott Parker has issued a final rallying call before Saturday's showdown with Wigan Athletic - with only a limited number of seats available on the day from the Ticket Office.

Speaking in an exclusive WHUTV video posted on the club's official Facebook page, Parker revealed he has been battling to overcome his chest infection in a bid to play in this afternoon's major meeting. Parker also recalled his spectacular winner in last season's victory against the Latics at the Boleyn and emphasised the importance of strong fan support.

"This is an important game for us," he said. "So we are going to try to win. I've said many a time that the fans are really important for us and, when the fans get behind us, it makes a massive difference on the field, especially when times aren't going well and it's hard out there,

"We are really trying to do to get the three points. As always the fans are going to be massive for us. Hopefully we can get the three points for them."
