MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe never deserved to win the game but Iโ€™m disappointed at some of the decisions. I thought their penalty wasnโ€™t one whereas ours when Gabriel Agbonlahor was brought down was a spot-kick. โ€œI thought referee Mike Deanโ€™s performance was poor. I still donโ€™t think we did enough to win the game. โ€œWe never got going but couldnโ€™t fault the lads for effort. Iโ€™m honest enough to feel we didnโ€™t deserve to win.โ€ Paul Lambert, Sunday, 8 December 2013.
