Ipswich boss Paul Jewell on bringing in players after a crushing 7-1 to Peterborough…


“I know I need some defenders and more in the group who have guts.

"People who have got a bit of determination and passion like the supporters have got."

Midfielder Ben Davies on Derby County’s start to the season…

“We have started really well but that is all it is - a start.

“When you look at the players we have signed we are going to score goals and we seem to have shored it up at the back.”

Doncaster Rovers manager Sean O’Driscoll on Carling Cup fixture against Leeds…

"Every game is important. It gives us a chance to put the performance against Derby to bed.

“Despite dominating possession we failed really to trouble the Derby defence, and we gave away three sloppy goals.

“Regardless of the results, that's not happened previously this season - we've come off of every game probably deserving something."

Watford manager Sean Dyche on Bristol Rovers Carling Cup fixture…

"It is another big exciting game and they won't make it easy for us.

"They're the home side and they'll want to turn over a side from a higher division - we have to be prepared both mentally and physically.

"Every game is important to win. It's frustrating we haven't had a win, especially as we've been in some great positions.

"We've created bundles of chances but not had the killer instinct or the clinical edge to finish things."


Hull manager Nigel Pearson on the current losing streak…

"When we have as much possession as we're having, you have to do something with it and at the moment we're huffing and puffing, but not doing a great deal with it.

"I may have a look at addressing that and changing the style of play because it may need that.

"We've played three games at home now, lost them all and not scored a goal so that gives cause for concern. I have to accept that we have a bit of a problem here."

Portsmouth manager Steve Cotterill on new boy Erik Huseklepp…

“What I want to do is to try to integrate him gently.

“We didn’t have that luxury last season but I think our fans will have been excited by what they’ve seen.

“He was itching to get on with 20 minutes to go and I just wanted to make sure it was right.’
