Houston focuses on opposition

Houston focuses on opposition

Peter Houston says that a change of venue will not affect his players ahead of their Europa League qualifier against AEK Athens tonight.

The Greeks have been forced to move the tie to their neighbours Olympiakos' ground after their own pitch was ruled unplayable. And as a result none of their fans will be allowed to attend over fears of potential clashes with Olympiakos supporters.

But Houston was preferring to focus on the quality of opposition rather than worrying too much about the venue.

"AEK are a quality side and, if the stadium is full or it is empty, it doesn't matter," he told BBC Sport.

"As far as the football side is concerned, they are still the top-class team we saw last week."
