"I believe the club showed its strength and has needed to show it at times this year. Everybody within the club has shown it and the atmosphere of the crowd was magnificent, it really was."

"It was a terrific performance from the players and an all-round really good night,"

"It was a special night as far as I am concerned, maybe one of the best games I have ever been involved in, because of the atmosphere, the crowd and the standard of the opposition. But more importantly, it was special because of the performance the players put in. I thought they played really well, so it was a good night. I was a bit disappointed with the result, but overall there were a lot of good things to take from it.
