MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œWe came here as the bottom side in the Second Division โ€ฆ a aide badly needing a point.

โ€œWe got a draw . . . and as far as I am concerned a point away from home is a great result.

"All the lads worked really hard and I admired their professional attitude."

Tommy Docherty.



"I have a golden rule.

โ€œNever talk about the opposing team unless it's to praise them for their contribution to the game.

"No comment."

Portsmouth manager George Smith when asked about Villaโ€™s performance.
