MATCH QUOTES

"Is Jimmy Brown a good player? What do you think? โ€œYes, he's going to be a great player. โ€œHe won the corner from which we scored, and during the whole game I donโ€™t think he stopped running. โ€œIt was his first full League game of the season, although he has played in the League Cup. โ€œIt wasnโ€™t a good match against Barnsley, but I think the players who came in because of injuries did fairly well. โ€œThings [injuries] have happened all at once. โ€œIt was only a free games ago that we had a settled side. โ€œThen a crop of injuries meant making quite a few changes. โ€œBut for all that I donโ€™t think Barnsley would have scored if they hadnโ€™t had that penalty.โ€ Vic Crowe.
