MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought we played good football but that we were also Charltonโ€™s best player. โ€œNo matter how much good football you play you canโ€™t legislate for silly mistakes like we gifted them. โ€œWe have had a good start to the season and that is probably the best we have played but you cannot give away goals like we have tonight.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
