MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe first half was excellent and we deserved to go in front, but we are instead left to rue the chances we would normally take. โ€œThey were big moments in the game, hitting the post and Gabriel Agbonlahor missing a chance heโ€™d usually score. โ€œBut when they scored, it became a fatal blow, not just a setback.โ€ Martin O'Neill.
