MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe played very well today. Derby started very brightly and we were playing second fiddle. โ€œBut we got the goal and the whole game changed. There was plenty of confidence about the side but we had to work hard and try to get the ball back. โ€œPetrov played very well last week and recreated that today. โ€œWe have got everything to play for still this season, but we canโ€™t make any mistakes. We need to give ourselves a chance.โ€ Martin Oโ€™Neill.
