MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWeโ€™ve had the most outstanding chances, and I thought their goalkeeper was going to get man of the match. โ€œThere was one save in particular down to his right hand side that was unbelievable, then he saved the penalty and youโ€™re thinking if itโ€™s going to be one of those days. โ€œThankfully Kodjia has done what heโ€™s done best. The pleasing thing is that heโ€™s stuck at it, missing the penalty, and won us the match. Itโ€™s his eighth goal in 11 games. โ€œWeโ€™ve still got a long way to catch up, weโ€™ve got to try and make an impression on the top six, thatโ€™s got to be our aim.โ€ Steve Bruce, Sunday, 18 December 2016.
