Montreal Impact Need to Win All Three Matches, ClaimsTaider
Montreal Impact midfielder Saphir Taider is of the opinion that the club need to win the last three games in order to have a chance of reaching the play-offs at end of the campaign. Montreal Impact are in a difficult situation with regards to reaching the objective of play-offs. The club enter into the last three games of the campaign still unsure about a top six finish, as they have been able to win just two of the last five games in the MLS. Two of the last three games for Montreal are at home and this gives them enough confidence, butTaider says that a 100% record is of paramount importance in this run.
Taider admitted that “ there was nervousness within the squad and the stressful time calls for a lot of focus from the players ,“in order to make something positive out of the campaign. Montreal were in a decent position to reach the play-offs but the heavy 5-1 loss against DC United has taken the wind out of the team. Montreal’s incredible collapse against DC United will rob the team of confidence going into a crucial period. “ The last three games “ do appear winnable since all of the opponents have been going through a difficult time of their own.
“The end of the season is approaching, so we’re obviously a little nervous. And because we need to win, it’s a stressful time. But we need to take that stress and turn it into something positive. We have to play with that feeling and try to win those three games. If we don’t, we’ll be filled with regret at the end of the season. It’s up to us to show what we can do, starting this weekend against Columbus,” said Montreal Impact, who face Columbus Crew in the upcoming match.
