MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI could do with a goal because any striker likes to aversion one on three games. โ€œI didnโ€™t really think I would start the season, and I know I will have to carry on working hard to stay in the side. โ€œIt was an accident [Barry Horne losing front teeth]. โ€œI went across to sort out the melee [after a confrontation between Barry Horne and Kevin Richardson] and I was just trying to push Horne away. โ€œIf I did catch him then Iโ€™m very sorry, I certainly didnโ€™t hit him on purpose.โ€ Cyrille Regis. โ€œCyril simply went over to sort things out. โ€œIt was a storm in a teacup.โ€ Ron Atkinson. โ€œI thought it was the red card for me under the new professional foul rules.โ€ Southampton goalkeeper Tim Flowers after handling outside of the area. โ€œIt was not deliberate. โ€œIt was an instinctive reaction.โ€ Referee Keith Berge on why he did not red card Tim Flowers.
