MATCH QUOTES

โ€I am very disappointed, we needed to win the game at home to a team that we could have leapfrogged. โ€œWe failed to capitalise and it was not good enough. I think a draw would have been a fair result, both teams were average. โ€œThe situation is getting worse, it is alright saying ifs, buts and maybes, but we are not picking up the wins and that is why we are down near the bottom of the league. โ€œWe are all in this together but as the manager I take all the responsibility. โ€œI will use the international break to get my players fitter because they are not fit enough yet to play the way I want them to play. For some of them it will be like a mini pre-season.โ€ Tim Sherwood, Saturday, 3 October 2015.
