Quotes

Roy Hodgson

"It is going to be a strange day for me, for Steven Reid and Dean Kiely because we spent such a happy time there and we have a lot of respect for the club and the fans.

"It is a little bit strange that amongst our joy and celebrations, we have to accept that we will see the pain of relegation etched on their faces. There are still a lot of people there that I worked with behind the scenes, and players that I worked with too.

"Obviously we are going to try and win the game, that is what we are going to try and do. But I am very disappointed that their last game in the Premier League will be against a team that I am managing, and I would have preferred that to have been someone else, because I do feel strongly for the club."

Darren Moore

"Its very, very important we finish the season on a high. Its been that way in recent weeks and weve got some wonderful results against some really good football clubs. All five games have been excellent results and we continue to work on extending that.

"Weve still got a real big game ahead of us. I do feel its really important that you gain momentum and I think every other Premier League manager would tell you the same. We need to keep that mentality going in the football club.

"It would be great to go six games unbeaten as the games have been difficult. Weve focused on making sure our planning and preparation has been good this week.

"The record is there for others to speak about, were just going into another game knowing that we have to be at our very best to get a result - and were just focusing on that."
