MATCH QUOTES

"We were disappointed in the goals we conceded, but thatโ€™s history now and we have to build the guys up from this and move on to the next game. โ€œI thought there were a lot of positives, especially in the first half. We came with a game plan to frustrate one of the best sides in the Premier League and probably ended up with the better chances, albeit half-chances. โ€œSecond half, we were sure Southampton would come out and play at a higher tempo, but we thought if we got to 60 minutes we could go at them again, but that wasnโ€™t to be. โ€œThe second goal comes from an individual error and the disappointing thing is weโ€™re out of the cup.โ€ โ€œItโ€™s been a pretty hectic few days for me since I got a call on Sunday asking me to take charge,โ€ he said. โ€œIโ€™m disappointed as Tim was very good to me, bringing me back to the club and the players are disappointed as they donโ€™t like to see managers losing their jobs. โ€œI havenโ€™t spoken to anyone since Sunday about how long Iโ€™m going to be doing the job. Sooner rather than later it would be better for the club to appoint a new manager and we can get back to doing what weโ€™re doing. โ€œBut it seems to be theyโ€™ve gone down the road of talking to one or two people, so good luck to whoever comes in. If they ask me to stay on for Mondayโ€™s game, fine by me.โ€ Caretaker manager Kevin MacDonald, Wednesday, 28 October 2015.
