That’s all from Dominic Iorfa..

Stay tuned for all the latest throughout the afternoon..

I’ve enjoyed it. We’ve got a good relationship and he’s a good player.

We started the season well and I’m enjoying playing with him. He’s a good guy.

Off the pitch he’s a funny guy and in training and games he’s probably the most serious guy out there.

It’s a new partnership and we’ve started well barring last week. As a whole I feel like competition is high, Chey has been excellent. It’s about striking up partnerships with everyone.

He’s a great lad and has settled in well.

He could be massive. To be successful we need goals and he’s a goalscorer. If he’s at it and performing to the best of his ability, he’ll be hugely important to us.

That’s our long term goal, automatic or to win the league, but we haven’t set our point target.

Short-term it’s to win the next game and go from there.

From what I’ve seen from those first six games no game is easy - that’s no different this weekend.

It’ll be another tough game and if we all turn up at it, we’ll have that attitude and we need to win.

That home record is good, that’s something we really wanted to do this season, especially with the support we’ve had behind us. We need to carry on that record.

I quite enjoyed playing midfield, it was a bit of a surprise to be honest... I thought I played quite well there in the game I got injured - but I’m a centre back. If the gaffer feels I can do a job there, I will, but hopefully my CDM days are behind me.

Since I’ve been at the club, I think this is the best atmosphere I’ve been part of... It’s a good environment, and spirits are high.

He’s looked good when he’s trained... He’s comfortable in possession, and he’s a good guy. He should fit right in.

Everyone was pretty well behaved... Pato is usually the one, but it was early in the morning and I think everyone was tired and wanted to get breakfast!
