MATCH QUOTES

“There are bound to be tight experiences in front of us and we have all got to keep our nerve. “We are not going to have too many games when we are comfortably ahead by two goals. “I have told our players they must not become affected when we score or maybe concede a goal.” Graham Taylor.
