Ollie humbled by Japan disaster

BY foxsports • April 2, 2011

Holloway is still reeling at the dreadful events that unfolded in the Far East. And he felt compelled to comment on the disaster ahead of the Barclays Premier League match against Fulham on Sunday at Craven Cottage. He said: "Some things in life beggar belief at the moment. I know I am healthy, I know I have my family safe but unfortunately people in Japan don't know where there loved ones are. "We are involved in football and we are going to try our best but my heart goes out to those people." Blackpool are only one point above the relegation zone as they head to London but Holloway is not worried about the run-in and perhaps losing their status. He said: "Obviously there is a lot at stake but I am very positive. "It is all to play for. It is absolutely exciting. The funny thing is you try and work out who should win what games, we have blown that off the chart. "The teams who come up don't normally win away games but look at us. We will be calm, we will be trying to play football. You won't see us freeze, you won't see us worry. "Who knows which way it is going to go. It is really exciting. "A lot of people thought we would be lucky to get 10 points. "Hopefully we can progress. In the second part of the season we have probably come out more on the losing side than the winning side but we have been in every single game."
