MATCH QUOTES

โ€The players battled and were very good. Leandroโ€™s free-kick was fabulous. His goal against Manchester City was brilliant but I think that surpasses it. โ€œI thought we deserved to win the game. I knew it would be a tough game so itโ€™s a good win. โ€œThe clean sheet gives us confidence going forward and I was really pleased with the result. The lads were excellent.โ€ Paul Lambert, Saturday, 9 November 2013.
