View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: "We need to keep our nerve and not panic. We are back at home and we have some very, very good footballers at this club."


Owen Coyle said: "The players will be ready for Saturday. We were frustrated on Tuesday because we didn’t take the three points available to us, not frustrated because of the performance.”
