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.
