MATCH QUOTES

“I am very disappointed with the result. We should, as a reward at least, have got one goal and probably got a draw. “I thought we started well. Our morale probably went down when we conceded that own goal because we had a bit of a slump, but the second half was night and day with the first half. “We were quicker, better, sharper and created chance after chance, but unfortunately we didn’t manage to put the ball in the back of the net and this is my only regret because I was pleased with the effort of the players and their reaction.” Gérard Houllier.
