MATCH QUOTES

"I shall not criticise the crowd. When you get 38,000 coming to a game and watching a poor performance, they are entitled to criticise "This is something I have learned to accept, and so must the players. โ€œOur supporters have been patient for a long time and they must have been terribly disappointed today." Vic Crowe.
