MATCHDAY QUOTES

"I was very disappointed at being booked for the tackle. I won the ball and the guy started kicking at me. Then I retaliated a bit."

โ€œWe have a good team, everyone is buzzing

โ€œWe are unstoppable with Graham Taylor leading us. He's teaching me things I didn't even know about.

โ€œIโ€™m already a better player and I think there's a lot more to come out, as well."

โ€œWe are finding it difficult to settle in Birmingham. I'm a London boy and life here is very different."

Andy Gray.


"In that respect Gray was unfortunate.

"The tackle was a foul but it was not malicious.

"I spoke to referee after the match and he regretted having to caution the pair of them.

โ€œI thought the refereeing was first class, by the way, and I am making no issue of that.

"We won't know until Wednesday or Thursday how the offence was graded but if it was a three or four pointer then Gray will miss Reading and Stoke.

"There seems to be a nice balance and shape about the 11.

โ€œWe're back in a position where, even it another team wins all their matches, we have to drop points not to go up.โ€

Graham Taylor.


"I've played eight matches since returning and I haven't felt a thing.

"I was a great fan of Mark's [Walters] and. yes, I suppose I have replaced him although we play in very different ways.

โ€œHis ball control was amazing. I try to be fast and direct although I realise I have to improve my final ball and positional play.

'They've all got to catch us now. Without taking anything for granted. we're in the driving seat."

Tony Daley.
