MATCH QUOTES

โ€œThe players did what they can. โ€œThe first 45 minutes we were OK and defended well. We tried to do our best but we started the second half too poorly and when you are 2-0 down it is over. โ€œWhen you are bottom of the table it is difficult to play with full confidence. The fans were behind the team. We donโ€™t have enough quality properly.โ€ Reฬmi Garde, Saturday, 27 February 2016.
