View from the dugout

Dave Jones said: “The most important thing from our perspective is that our fate is in our own hands and you can’t ask for anything more than that.”

Tony Mowbray said: “The dressing room know the standards have got to be higher next year in everything we do. We’ve got to keep way more clean sheets and defend a lot better.”
