on the win over Dover…
It was a good performance on a lovely pitch and we played some good football. We got a little bit sloppy in the second half but, overall, it was a good work-out.

on pre-season…
It’s gone well, it’s gone very well. The lads are looking very sharp and the football is coming along nicely.

on a pleasing performance…
Tonight was a tough game but the boys have played some really good football and I’m pleased with them.

on Henri Lansbury and Vito Mannone…
Henri is on the fringes of the first-team squad and has applied himself very well. Vito, as well, was first-class. These games are good run-outs for them and they can all use it for their own purposes.
