MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was pretty tight. We had chances and there wasnโ€™t much in it. In the second half we came out and played really well. โ€œI thought they scored against the run of play in the second half. We were playing really well, with confidence and the crowd were really up for it. โ€œStarting with Christian Benteke was a big ask because he has only trained a couple of days in a month. He got 30 minutes and that will have done him the world of good.โ€ Paul Lambert, Sunday, 20 October 2013.
