MATCH QUOTES

โ€Iโ€™m satisfied with a point under the circumstances. Itโ€™s hard enough playing with 10 men any time but with two games in two days the lads were running on empty. โ€œAll credit to the lads, we could have won it and had chances at the end.โ€ Paul Lambert, Sunday, 28 December 2014.
