Sammon ready for relegation scrap

BY foxsports • April 12, 2011

The striker played in the goalless draw with Falkirk on the final day of last season that meant Killie secured their SPL status. And with the Latics due to take on relegation rivals Blackpool this weekend, the Irishman believes that his experience could be invaluable. "Blackpool will be one of the biggest games I've played in," the 23-year-old told the Evening Post. "When I was at Kilmarnock we were in a relegation fight which went down to the last game of the season against Falkirk who were two points behind us. "They came to us on the last day of the season and had they won, we would have been the ones relegated so I've played in pressure games like that and I'm relishing the opportunity at being involved in the next couple of games. "I'm looking to fight for the good of the team for our survival in the Premier League. I personally believe we can stay up and that is the feeling throughout the squad."
