MATCH QUOTES

โ€œI thought we were excellent in the first half. The wind was very strong but even in the second half we had chances. It was a very close game. โ€œWe thought when we got it 1-1 that we might have gone on. We will go again. I donโ€™t think we deserved to lose.โ€ Paul Lambert, Saturday, 21 December 2013.
