Simon Grayson On the Game Overall
"It's about winning matches and that's what we have done today"
"We have some good exciting players at this football club"
"Whilst you are only one up you are always looking over your shoulder, but Jordan came up with a great goal"
"We have won the football match and there are 15 to go to get us over that final winning line"
Simon Grayson on today's team selection
"We brought one or two back (on the bench)"
"The team weren't too far away against Sheffield United and they deserved an opportunity to stake a claim for the shirt for the rest of the season."
"The whole team is a unit and they want to do well for each other"
"The central defence did okay, but there are things we can do better, one or two things we will work on."
Simon Grayson on his first game in charge
"I don't generally get nervous ahead of games and today was no different."
