Hi everyone,

Monday's victory at Sunderland was a massive one for us. It gave us another set of back-to-back wins and took us to 37 points, eleven ahead of the relegation zone and just three behind Stoke in tenth.

It put a smile on everyone's face and lets us think we've got another season in the Premier League when we won't have as many major injuries as we had this season.

We'll have an interesting summer where hopefully we'll have a few new additions, and quality additions, which will only make us better and start pushing us up that league to get into that top ten more and build towards the Olympic Park in two years.

You have to admire the board for sticking with Sam. We all said it - we had a very tough time earlier on in the season with injuries. I didn't help with the suspensions after my sendings-off. I hold my hands up to that but i don't think I've been through a season where I've been hit with so many injuries to major players.

At one point we had all three of our centre halves out, and we were playing right backs and left backs in the middle, but we all dug in and it's going to be so pleasing at the end of this season knowing that we've scrapped away when we've needed to and when we have had our full team, we've got back to where we feel we belong. I'm sure that if we had our full squad for the season, we would have had a better season and we would never have been talking about relegation.

It's nice to be sitting where we are now with six games to go and we're looking forward to what hopefully is going to be a few more wins. Our aim is to knock Stoke out of that tenth spot and finish where we did last year.

Then we can all go and have a good summer and let the gaffer and the Board start worrying about who they are going to bring in for next season.

We're back at home on Sunday when we face Liverpool and it will be a good test to take them on. We won last time out here and Hull was a tough game. The gaffer knew it and he was delighted with the three points.

There were a few grumblings, but I must say in and around where we live all the supporters have been fantastic with him and all the lads. They were three good points, as were Monday's and now we're not far off being able to celebrate come the end of the season at another successful campaign.

Come on you Irons!
