MATCH QUOTES

โ€Iโ€™ve never felt this bad. Ever. There was a lot of bad play there in the last half hour. The only way you can stop the momentum is to stop the opposition. We turned it over stupidly. โ€œWhat can I say? Iโ€™m gutted for everyone whoโ€™s associated with the football club. We have to stop letting in soft goals. Who cares if we played well? We lost. Totally lost.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Sunday, 13 September 2015.
