MATCH QUOTES

โ€œNathan Baker was concussed. He took a blow to the side of his head. That was dangerous and it rocked us a bit - we had worked all week on the system - but thankfully heโ€™s a lot better. He throws himself into things, thatโ€™s what he does. โ€œIn the second half we were excellent, we looked great and a real threat. We were lifted by the goal. Itโ€™s not easy playing Arsenal - they are title contenders but everybody can see we gave them a game. โ€œYou have to give us credit. We came into it but we might have snuck a draw.โ€ Monday, 13 January 2014, Paul Lambert.
