MATCH QUOTES

โ€œWe have to admit that we were poor. We lacked sharpness and some of them were running on empty, to be honest. โ€œIn my experience, that happens when you play two or three games quickly after an international break. โ€œIt was frustrating but Burton are good at what they do. Itโ€™s never easy to come here. We knew that. But, after getting off to a good start, we have to take care of the ball better than we did.โ€ Steve Bruce, Saturday, 8 April 2017.
