MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThis is going to be a hard, difficult season because a lot of the teams are so similar. โ€œWhen you play those other teams theyโ€™re important games, and it was vital to get the three points. โ€œThere wasnโ€™t much between the two teams today but fine individual goals from Nolberto Solano and Lee Hendrie won us the game. โ€œIt wasnโ€™t the best of games and conditions were difficult, but thatโ€™s no excuse. โ€œComing into the game I wanted the three points and I wasnโ€™t concerned how we got them. โ€œThere are a couple of points to be ironed out [on a new deal] and I hope theyโ€™re not big issues. โ€œBut Iโ€™m not giving the club any sort of ultimatum, which is what Iโ€™ve been reading. โ€œI have to show the fans the faith they have in me, but nobody should make any ultimatum to the people they work for.โ€ David Oโ€™Leary.
