MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was such an innocuous header [Jemsonโ€™s goal] that there shouldnโ€™t have been any debate. โ€œBut whether the ball was over the line or not - and even TV pictures havenโ€™t proved anything - it was the first goal Les has conceded in four matches. โ€œWhat he [Les Sealey] did was unprofessional, and he knows what I think. โ€œIt was so unnecessary, thatโ€™s what annoys me.โ€ Ron Atkinson.
