Owen Coyle on the victory

Coyle answers all those doubters and naysayers.
“It is a timely and terrific boost because anyone outside this town would have looked at the first five fixtures and think we would be sat here with zero points.”
On the enormity of what they were up against.
“I was in good form before the game and I felt that if we go to our maximum and had a little luck, that we could get a positive result.
“Then the TV flashed up that in their last 17 games against newly-promoted clubs they won 17, drawn nil and lost nil. Goals for 44, goals against 7.
“I wished I had the TV off at that point, so I tried to hide that from the players and keep them in a positive frame of mind and they have done all we asked of them.”
