Manager Billy Davies said he would not look beyond the Portsmouth game as he surveyed the new fixture list.
‘I think that we can look no further ahead than that,’ said Davies. ‘It’s going to be a long, hard season but the most important thing is that we are prepared. We have got to be ready.
‘On paper, you have the glamour games – we all know who the glamour teams are – but it will not be any easier against the rest of the teams because there are some real quality teams in there,’ added Davies.
