TEAM NEWS

Paul Lambert surprisingly prefers Brad Guzan in goal to Shay Given despite the player having been released at the end of the previous season after having been deemed surplus to requirements. Meanwhile, Lambert recalls Ron Vlaar, Karim El Ahmadi, Brett Holman in place of Enda Stevens, Fabian Delph and Chris Herd.

MATCH QUOTES

โ€I thought we were excellent throughout, offensively and defensively. Some of the football we played was very good. Weโ€™ve got a young side and every one of them was very good. Weโ€™d rather try to play football than not and weโ€™ve got really good players in our team. If we keep working as hard as that weโ€™ll do well. Weโ€™re getting stronger.โ€ Paul Lambert, Sunday, 2 September 2012.
