They’re allowed to voice their opinions [fans]. We listen to them and hear what they have to say. We’re trying to build a team.

We keep working to bring it. The only way we change it, despite all the noise, is winning games.

Not today. He was one of the ones that wasn’t quite fit. We’ll have a look into next week.

We can’t afford for them to lose one game for six or seven.

DM on changing mentality

You have to get that win. It’s usually a scrappy or emphatic win. And then you build from there.

We’ve got ourselves into positions where we stay in games. We do that, but we have to force the issue and go and get it. Nobody is going to give us points, we have to go and get it.

Both DA and FDB have great energy and drive. When he gets it like that, he can open things up.

They offer something different as two eights. We want more of that.

We wanted that balance and cohesion. It was an offensive play. It was an offensive player to step on and get three points.

We wanted him to get the ball into the front from a natural position. He did OK.

It was a driving stick for me as a player. You’re a professional, you have to drive that on.

We got our noses in front. Did it affect the players, we got a lead today? So I’d say no.

One or two injuries, we had to shuffle the pack again today.

There were players out there I didn’t really want to play today but I had to. With the team the way it was, there was enough about us to win the game today.

There were a lot of moments that should have come better.

My job is to change it. And I will be doing. Boos will ring around because they want to win. They’ve had a hard week at work and they want to win. I understand that.

There are 92 clubs in the league that want to win. We’re not a team of individuals. We have to find that balance.

DM on a lack of fear factor

We have to create that. We have to win games, that’s the only way.

In my experience there is a certain DNA you have to have.
