They said what?!...

Phil Brown: “I don't normally describe league games as cup finals but this one against Luton Town is, because if we win we know we can take it down to the last game of the season at Morecambe.”

John Still: “We'll play to win. If we got a point, I wouldn’t moan about that, but we’re not going to play for a point. It’s important we go and try to attack, we’re best when we do that, we’ll go to attack, I think they’ll try to attack too.”
