MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œWe played well in the first half but when you are three goals ahead at the interval it is not always easy to get the bit between your teeth again.

โ€œI was particularly pleased with John Gregory and Allan Evans, who cost us comparative peanuts.

โ€œMeanwhile, mathematically we still have a chance of making Europe.โ€

Ron Saunders.
