View from the dugout

Dave Jones: "We need to make our possession count. We were outstanding on the ball on Friday against Leeds but didn't score enough goals and that's what we need to start doing."

Eric Black: "We've had the full 19 that travelled to Derby at the weekend report back for training. We've also added young Raheem Hanley to the squad who did really well this week in the Reserve game, as did the whole of the Reserve team.
