MATCH QUOTES

โ€œItโ€™s not great for the heart, to go down 2-0 in a derby. All credit to the team, the response was fantastic. โ€œWith derby games, it doesnโ€™t matter where you are in the table, theyโ€™re really unpredictable. โ€œHe [Christian Benteke] did the same last season with the incredible scoring run. His general game is getting back to what it was.โ€ Paul Lambert, Wednesday, 29 January 2014.
