MATCH QUOTES

โ€œHe played very well and got off to a brilliant start but tired in the second half because he hasnโ€™t played too many 90-minute games. โ€œWeโ€™ll get more than that out of him and he will prove a valuable player for many years to come - heโ€™s a threat. โ€œHis pace worries defenders and heโ€™s given us a great option. He will prove to be a very good player eventually. David Oโ€™Leary.
