Allowing West Brom to come back from 2-0 down to 2-2 on Wednesday: 'We need to start keeping clean sheets. We have to be more cynical, more streetwise, take a booking now and again. When your own goals dry up, clean sheets keep you in matches.'

Tight division: 'The Championship is a long road and it's early days. We're 12th and need to be looking up. There is no team pulling away.'

Long-range strikes/goal target: 'I'll take a goal from a yard that hits me on the back of the head and goes in. The last two have come from distance and that's brilliant. They were special. Double figures is what I'd like to achieve this season and I don't think that's unattainable. I think I can score from outside and inside the box.'

New boys: 'Both Michael Hector and Josh Onomah have settled in really well. Everything settles down once the transfer window closes and you know what the squad is. Josh has had to be patient,. I think, if he gets a run of games, his performances will get better and better. He'll take the ball anywhere and he's strong and he's quick.'

Matt Penney: 'Matt''s been tremendous. He's a quiet boy but very confident once he gets on to the pitch. He does the basics right and there's quality in his left foot. All the young players have settled in seamlessly. That's down to the dressing room. The senior players are very welcoming.'

Bristol City test: 'They're in a similar position to us, I keep in touch with (right-back) Jack Hunt and he says they're a good side and capable of doing well. It will be nice to see him. I speak to him every couple of days. He's enjoying it down there. He's a top Championship player. He was a brilliant servant for this club.'
