But on the field things are looking up with Tuesday's memorable 3-1 FA Cup victory over Wolves setting up a mouthwatering fifth-round visit from Aston Villa.


"It's been well documented what has happened in the last two or three weeks, culminating in a bad week for us last week with administration. But there is some spirit in this team. We can look back on the Wolves result in a few years as a great victory," said Derry.
