"We have to make sure we keep ourselves fit and fresh. We have to beable to go into every game with that hunger for all three points and wehave got a few journeys over Christmas as well so it will be difficult.
"We have got a good squad so there might need to be a few players tocome in and out of the side. The gaffer is doing the right things at themoment to get us the points and we all believe in him.
"We have to take it one game at a time and make sure we are in the rightframe of mind to get maximum points."
