MATCH QUOTES

โ€The football club does not revolve around one player. Christian was brilliant last year, but has had a little spell when he has not been hitting the heights of last year. โ€œBut when he came on I thought he looked as if he was getting back to the powerhouse he is. Sometimes a rest is as good as playing. โ€œWe needed three points and I thought we were lethal in front of goal. โ€œI thought Agbonlahorโ€™s goal was world class - when he is like that with his speed and power there are not many people can catch him.โ€ Paul Lambert, Wednesday, 4 December 2013.
