MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was a tough game and Blackburn made it difficult. โ€œWe did not play as well as we have but we stuck in there and in the second half we came to the fore and got the equaliser. โ€œThe number of times we have come from behind this season is terrific I could not have asked for any more from the players.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
