MATCH QUOTES

"Quality 'keepers do the bulk of their work without being spectacular, then produce a magnificent save like that one in the last minute. โ€œIt could be the most important save of the season for us. We didn't want to lose our home record. โ€œOur form at Villa Park has been tremendous since I came here. "A defeat today could have destroyed confidence." Billy McNeill.
