MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe break [a trip to Bermuda] will give us the chance to get in some hard work. โ€œI think we can win a place in Europe. โ€œWe have a very young, talented team learning quickly with each match. โ€œI was pleased with our defensive performance, particularly as we had two youngsters making their League debuts.โ€ Graham Turner gets over excited after beating bottom four side Coventry.
