MATCH QUOTES

โ€œItโ€™s the end of an embarrassing record, and at least it was not a 1-0 win. โ€œIt was our first away win in the Premiership this season as everyone will know, and we are very, very pleased about it. โ€œI couldnโ€™t believe it that we were 2-0 up and just threw it away, as defensively we have been excellent all season, but great credit to the players for overcoming that. โ€œIโ€™m very happy with Joey, heโ€™s a 22-year-old boy on loan until the end of the season when we have an option to purchase. โ€œIโ€™m quite excited with him, he gives us an edge in midfield we have not had all season. โ€œHis age is right, the competitiveness about the boy is right, he will get better and Iโ€™m very hopeful we will be able to make it permanent. โ€œWe put him on the free-kicks and were expecting him to shoot - but not from 40 yards. โ€œHeโ€™s only played five games for Betis this season, this was his first in the Premiership so Iโ€™m very, very pleased with him.โ€ Graham Taylor.
