MATCH QUOTES

"For the first time this season, we came out with a second half which was based on confidence. โ€œI told Platt to stay forward instead of coming through from deep positions and we kept the tempo going much better. "We are not a top three side. โ€I just want a good season and I don't want to put any more pressure than that on the players." Graham Taylor.
