MATCH QUOTES

โ€œHeโ€™s [Ipswich goalkeeper Laurie Sivell] a bit brave and deserves all the credit going. It was his action that cost us an extra point. โ€œIpswich came for a point and in that respect they did their job very well. โ€œBut we did not play well ourselves for that type of negative approach is one we should be able to overcome.โ€ Ron Saunders.
