MATCH QUOTES

'You should not give away three goals like we did. 'The trouble is that there are players who are not accepting responsibility on the field. "Until it's proved mathematically that we are down. we still have a chance of staying up. 'The spirit among the players is tremendously high and we are Certainly not going to feel sorry for ourselves. “We shall be looking for a win at Millwall [the game would be postponed]." Vic Crowe.
