MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI am very proud of all of them. Considering we were a number of players short we performed very well. โ€œWe didnโ€™t deserve that at the end. They got a lucky break. โ€œJames played well and didnโ€™t have that much to do although he made one crucial save in the second half. โ€œObviously 0-0 would have been better but I still feel we have a very good chance of going through because a lot of our injured players will be back next week.โ€ John Gregory.
