MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIโ€™m disappointed, naturally. Some of the goals we conceded were poor tonight. โ€œI feel sorry for the fans who travelled all this way. I spoke to some of them on Tuesday and told them why Iโ€™d kept some first-teamers like Gabby Agbonlahor at home, so I hope they accepted my explanation. โ€œBut thatโ€™s not the point. You want to win every game you play and we didnโ€™t.โ€ Martin O'Neill.
