MATCH QUOTES

"The fact that I took Peter Broadbent off and substituted Simmons was in no way a reflection on his performance in that match or an any of the matches he has played for me. "Broadbent had been ill for most of Friday night and it was only because of this that chose him to come off. โ€œI did not want to tax his strength in any way for he has been a key man.โ€ Tommy Docherty after being criticised for his substitution. "Under the conditions t just told the lads to go kick and rush โ€ฆ and they finished full value for both points. โ€œThey all know there be no let up now. โ€œWe want to finish this season on the highest possible note โ€ฆ in this highest possible position in the league." โ€˜Tacticsโ€™ Tommy Docherty explains his methods.
