MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIโ€™m very pleased. We started off quite slowly and they were bright and lively but we weathered that spell and got in front and then we played really well. โ€œWe looked dangerous and looked like we were going to score another couple of goals. We scored on maybe our second attack but once we scored we had reasonable control. โ€œWeโ€™ve won three consecutive away games and there are encouraging signs for next season. Weโ€™ve come roaring back at the end of the season and it stands us in good stead for next season.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
