Football: HUTTON INQUIRY DEMANDS ANGER; Peter Says City Men Are Not Nasty Enough to Be Winners


Byline: Paul KEANE

A FRUSTRATED Peter Hutton last night told his Derry City team-mates they need to get 'nasty' if they want to avoid the drop.

Hutton, 31, has been acting as the club's temporary player/manager following Gavin Dykes' resignation last weekend but things continue to go downhill at a rapid rate.

The two times league winner named himself to play against Bohemians on Friday night and they came away with a 3-0 spanking.

It was Derry's fourth loss in a row and compounded their dismal run that has now yielded no goals in over 630 minutes of premier division action.

In all they've only hit the net five times this season and if it wasn't for the new league structure, where just one club gets relegated in 2004, then it would already be panic stations.

Hutton says it's not quite that alarming a situation yet, but he pointed to Tuesday night's clash with Dublin City at the Brandywell as a 'crossroads' for the club, not just this season but in its entire history.

City were also beaten on Friday night but by table toppers Shelbourne and the Vikings put in a spirited display to mirror their own recent turn in fortunes.

There's just a point between the two at the bottom and a win for City would see them leapfrog Derry into second from last.

By that stage Derry may have their new manager in charge but Hutton made it clear that whoever comes in won't have any magic wand.

He reckons there's only one way Derry can pull themselves out of this mess.

"We've got to get nasty," said Hutton.

"I don't mean that in a dirty way but we've got to start shouting at each other and demanding the ball from each other.

"We need a big change of attitude. We're far too nice and friendly out on the pitch.

"We've got to start looking each other in the eye and asking have we given it our all.

"You don't play football to make friends. It's a bonus if you leave football with a few friends but that's not what it's about.

"It's about getting results and doing your job properly which we're not doing."

Hutton joked that after his debut as manager at Dalymount Park he may never consider stepping into the hotseat again.

But he was the first to admit that there's a very serious side to the current situation and that no club, not even Derry who won the FAI Cup in 2002 and the league in 1997, is too big to go down. …
