View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: “We have to play our own game. We are aware of the dangers and strengths of the other team. If you worry about one player, another one could pop up.”

Paul Ince said: “We can't get complacent because we know how mad this Championship is. We know if we can get a result on Tuesday we will be safe and we can begin to look forward to the future."
