MATCHDAY QUOTES

โ€œIt was a tremendous match, and more games like this would bring back the missing thousands.

โ€œAll I hope is that the television cameras do full justice to a splendid game.โ€

Ron Saunders.


โ€œI was unlucky to collect my fourth caution of the season.

โ€œI only made bodily contact but perhaps referees are being a little over protective towards him [Trevor Francis] after his serious injury.โ€

Allan Evans.
