MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought we started as well as we have done for a number of weeks but the first goal was poor as we should have stopped the cross. โ€œThe second and third goals, we were in possession before they scored. โ€œThe pleasing thing is we never gave up. The disappointing thing for me is the manner of the goals.โ€ Paul Lambert, Sunday, 15 December 2013.
