MATCH QUOTES

โ€œHe is a goalscorer. That is why we brought him here. Itโ€™s great to have someone like him in the team. โ€œHe won us the game at St Andrews and heโ€™s done the same in the Carling Cup and that can make all the difference. โ€œIt illustrates why strikers are so important. Nine times out of 10 he will score in that situation.โ€ Roy Aitken.
