Owen: "Yes it is difficult for everyone at the minute, the players included. But it is always important to have the supporters behind you and it will be great if we have them behind us against Spurs tomorrow night.

"The supporters know what position we are in, and we know what position they are in, and really, we are all in this together and we are trying to get the results for not only them but everyone connected with the club.

"I think that fans and the players both appreciate each other's situation. It's a difficult situation but more than ever we are in it together.

"We are paid by the club to perform and we are not going to do certain things the fans do - that's not our job.

"And whatever feelings the supporters have, we know that they will always give us fanatical support out on the field and that is so very important to me and the rest of the players."
