Where did the game go wrong today?
“We didn’t score. We controlled the whole game. I know they had three headers at our goal. It has been the story of parts of our season, there have been so many great moments of our season, but parts of our season where we control, create but don’t score. If we don’t score enough goals you will never… a team like Newcastle won’t come out, they are very organised in what they will do and you are always open to what happened, I suppose.”
Tough evening for Tammy in front of goal. Thoughts on his night?
“That can happen. We can’t always rely on Tammy, we have to have goals across our front line. If we want to bridge the gap upwards we can’t just rely on Tammy. He has been fantastic this season. It didn’t quite come off for him this evening, but that is football. I can’t complain about anything from the team, really. Of course, we don’t want to give headers away in our box. They are big, it happens, but apart from that they gave everything to try to win the game.”

Getting frustrated with the same mistakes happening?
“We just want to win games. When you have played well, you can see it clearly. We have dominated, had the main share of possession in many of the games. That says something. It is not the vital stat, but it is a strong stat. Today we had possession around their box and you want to score goals. That is what wins goals.”
Did your attack lack patience?
“No. I think we probed, changed the play. They dropped deep and it is not easy, so you have to move the ball side-to-side quickly. Maybe at times in the first half that was a bit slow. But in the second half it wasn’t. When we attacked them there were so many moments that maybe a little bit of quality, final pass was just short or wasn’t right.”
