MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought, taking the penalty decision away from it, it was a fair result. โ€œFrom where I was I honestly thought it was a penalty. We tried to win the game but we are delighted with a point. โ€œYou look at our squad and look at Chelseaโ€™s and their agenda is far, far different to ours. โ€œThis is a big club. If we want to take it where people say it should be that is going to take a lot of money. โ€œLast season we sorted a lot of problems out and we are currently getting the best out of the players we have.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
