MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe were the better team in the first half. โ€œAs the game wore on, we had a bit of anxiety and we tried to hit the front men too early. We tried to mix it up, we wanted to stretch them. โ€œWhat I saw today was a lot of desire and heart and running. We need to see more quality. We have to take something from every game. We need six wins to the end of the season. We have 11 games left.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 28 February 2015.
