ON THE OVERALL PERFORMANCE
Out of the four performances we’ve had three decent ones, one full of mistakes and now today one full of character, which is what we questioned the other night and the players gave us what we were looking for today. 

I just never felt we were in any sort of real trouble today, even when we went a goal behind, the players kept their composure. I understand people are frustrated and they think we should just be rolling over Rotherham but they’re a dangerous animal because they’ve nothing to lose and they played like that. 

ON NICK POWELL
That’s the reason we signed him, for moments like that. He’s a £5 million player and he’s still a young man in football terms really, we know he’s got the quality, he’s a complicated boy, we know that, but I love him to bits and had a part in bringing him to the club and I take responsibility for that. If we can keep him fit, he can hopefully provide us with more moments like that.

ON THE FREE KICK
There was a big part of me that thought we had the right bloke on the pitch at that moment, I knew he’d delivered before and I knew he could deliver again. But obviously, we have to not get carried away about him being back, it’s early days yet.

ON THE DESIRE IN THE DRESSING ROOM
People have been frustrated, we’re in a sport that’s very competitive and I can assure people no one goes out of this dressing room to lose a game on purpose. If you look at the Ipswich game, between the mistakes, we actually play well, statistically, we are the better team. 

We need to get real, if we go down, we’ll come back fighting, if we stay up, fantastic, we’ve certainly got a lot of work to do. It’s our football club, so let’s all stick together.

ON MOMENTUM FOR BARNSLEY
The feeling around the club will be good now, we are all competitive people in and around the club, we’re all bad losers, we want to win and we will get a boost from this. Now we need to work hard again and go for another win.
