"It's difficult because some of these lads aren't ready for this level of football. You get forced into playing some games because the Premier League seem to think it's right to make you plays games that you're not ready for. Honestly, it’s a great stadium to play, a great football ground to play in and some of our lads have missed this now because you’re only playing a certain amount of stadiums a year. I always think it’s wrong that you’re getting pushed to play certain games on certain dates when you’re not ready to and you’re not qualified to. We’re lucky our lads did well tonight because if the lads go out on that pitch in front of that stadium, on live TV, and have a bad game, that could knock them back three or four months, it might ruin them.”
