MATCH QUOTES

โ€œIt was nice. I try and do that every time in training and luckily it went in today. It was a nice feeling to get my first goal in front of the Holte End. โ€œBrighton must have had 65% possession - they are a very good team and controlled the game. It was hard for us because it was the first game back after some bad results. It was nice to see the game out after losing a 2-0 lead against Wolves the other week. โ€œIt has been a change but it has been really good. It has been intense and the standards have gone up - that is no disrespect to Dean Smith but heโ€™s brought in some new rules and everybody was on it. โ€œIโ€™ll be here all day if I was to say the rules - there are quite a few.โ€ Ollie Watkins. โ€It feels really good and it was the result that we dreamt of. It was the perfect start for us but now weโ€™ve got to go and prove that we can back it up. Iโ€™m really pleased with the clean sheet and everything we asked of the players theyโ€™ve done. I thought we deserved it - Brighton had a lot of possession but in the areas that we wanted them to. It is a good start but weโ€™ve got to back it up now. โ€œThere is no better sight in football than a top number nine opening up like that and putting a top class finish in. The Holte End played their part today as did the rest of the ground. You can only win games if you defend your goal well and there were two top quality blocks in the first half. โ€œWeโ€™d lost five on the spin and you could tell the crowd were edgy and the players were at times. I thought the subs brought a lot and we looked so dangerous in the last 10 minutes of the game. We could have scored another. We know weโ€™ve got firepower and talented players - weโ€™ve just got to get the balance right to defend our goal.โ€ Steven Gerrard.
