MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI know what comes with being top. โ€œInwardly I am very excited and happy about what weโ€™ve achieved, but itโ€™s nothing. Weโ€™ve played 10 games and put ourselves into that position by getting our heads down and working hard. โ€œWith being top comes the expectation to stay there. I like to think Iโ€™ll deal with it better than last time. โ€œThe guys that have come in have done so well. โ€œI think the two Moroccans [Hadji and Hassan Kachloul] in particular have been a major plus to how well the team have done. โ€œHadji gives us so much down that right side. Other clubs have gambled enormous amounts of money on the transfer market and failed miserably.โ€ John Gregory. โ€œHe is the manager. He is doing a good job and he remains the manager.โ€ Doug Ellis.
