They Said What?...
Phil Brown: “We go there in the knowledge of it being a feisty six-pointer. We need the win to stay on the tails of the front three. As well as that, it's a chance to get ahead of Bury in the race for the next eight games.”
David Flitcroft: “I don’t want to add to the pressure by calling Saturday’s game a defining moment, but we are really focusing on how we can be competitive against Southend.”
