“Hand on heart, they were better than us and deserved the win, My job, and my remit off the chairman, is to win as many games as I can and send the fans home happy. The lads gave me everything, but it wasn’t enough to get the goals to win the game."
“I was happy with the way I set the team up; it was the best I could muster, We worked really hard with them this week to get them up for the game and I thought they were. We had a little bit of misfortune with players going down injured and Wardy was dizzy after 30 minutes, it didn’t really help me. But I just said to the lads we need to pick them up for another big game on Tuesday. "
“Quality did tell in the end. When we were 1-0 down it was quite an even game, I think they had better chances in the first half – I’m not disputing that. On another day a corner might drop and we might get a goal. I felt that the more we were having a go at them, the more we were vulnerable to the counter-attack and they’ve got pace throughout the team.
“I don’t claim to be a super manager. The lads are giving me everything they have got, but we haven’t possibly got that little bit of class.”
“I am proud of the way they played at the end, but I am disappointed with another defeat, We are doing everything to stop the rot.” Warne added
