I feel we had a ok pre-season as my assistant did take over the friendlies.
Press conference called
Press: So Ole, your first game is a Midlands derby are you feeling the pressure?
Solskjaer: Certainly i am but it gives me more of a reason to do well and show the fans that we have the ability to beat the relegation drop.
Press: How do you think the players are coping with the pressure?
Solskjaer: Well the players know more about this derby than me so they see the importance in the match for the fans and the club itself.
Press: Have you got your line-up sorted so you know who will be starting?
Solskjaer: Of course we will have our strongest team out apart from the odd one or two because of injuries but its great that Chris Brunt is back but not full fitness but he could feature the game in the later stages.
Press: Do you feel Chris, is a key player in the squad?
Solskjaer: Yes if i didn't feel he wasn't i wouldn't of named him as our captain.
Press: So just how important is Chris' influence?
Solskjaer: No one can argue with the influence that Chris has on the team he's been here quiet some time and can make an impact when we most need it.
Press: Thats all we have time for im afraid but thank you for your time.
