MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe now have everybody fit and we are a really good side when that happens. We needed our big players back from injury and if you take out Christian Benteke and Ron Vlaar then they are a big part of our side. โ€œIt could have been more than a 1-0 win, we had good chances so it couldโ€™ve been three or four. โ€œThis is a hard place to come but Iโ€™m delighted with the result. โ€œWe will try to bring in people if itโ€™s possible. If we can get one or two experienced players in to give us a hand then we will try to do that. It could give us a lift in the dressing room if we can do it.โ€ Paul Lambert, Wednesday, 1 January 2014.
