MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was the worst game of the season. The ball must have been screaming at one point, saying โ€˜please donโ€™t bash me againโ€™. โ€œWeโ€™re still not remotely near the finished article. Iโ€™ve got a busy summer ahead, with a huge clear-out job to continue. โ€œBut at least the fans have not only won a derby, theyโ€™ve seen the effort their team has put in. Weโ€™ve taken away the stigma that they donโ€™t care.โ€ Steve Bruce, Sunday, 23 April 2017.
