Martin O'Neill says his players' declined the chance to attend the Cheltenham Festival ... but didn't HE put the block on it?
Martin O'Neill: "The lads had thought about going down there, and I'm quite sure had we eked out a win against QPR then they probably would have gone.
"But in the grand scheme of things I think the priority is clear and that is the overwhelming need to win some football games, hopefully starting this weekend and to do that, the focus has to be be total.
"The Cheltenham thing was straightforward."
