MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIโ€™ve known Route One football for nine years. โ€œBut suddenly Iโ€™m with a team that plays a lot more football.โ€ John Fashanu. โ€œIt was an open game because the two managers wanted to play football, and they put out two teams to do just that. โ€œOur front two both scored, and hopefully they will continue to do It, but thereโ€™s going to be lots of competition for places.โ€ Steve Staunton.
