MATCH QUOTES

“I’ve seen the replay and I don’t even think we should be debating an obvious offside. “There was also a blatant handball at the other end and the referee went to whistle then changed his mind. “But I don’t want to detract in any way from Sheffield United. They were the better side and we were second best for long periods. “Anybody who plays Neil Warnock’s Sheffield United is going to get a hard game. “But I still expected us to come here and win but we didn’t deserve to win today.” David O’Leary.
