MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe came here on a hiding to nothing. I was proud of how we went about it - we tried to get between the lines and they couldnโ€™t cope with Jack Grealish. We always want to play fast, flowing football but we canโ€™t always do that. โ€œWeโ€™ve shown weโ€™re a flexible team. I want players who I can look in the eye and get what I expect. Tonight is a huge boost. I thought we could have won a lot more comfortably.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Tuesday, 22 September 2015.
