View fro the dugout


Dave Jones said: “I would rather play the top teams because we seem to play better against them. We know all about Watford, they are a very good side but we can be a good side too. The next few games will show how far we have come.”


Gianfranco Zola said: "What will be important to us is how the players react to what happened at Wolves. What they show us on Tuesday evening will tell us a lot."
