Managers Reaction

Sheffield United’s Slavisa Jokanovic: “We were really pleased with the game. For 85% of the game we played really well, we moved the ball well and tried to find spaces. For us this is a massive win.” he added. “With energy and trust, we can play well. We are looking for progress. We need to carry on working to get more good performances in the future. We don’t trust ourselves enough at times, I hope this will give them confidence because these are a good team in the Championship.”

Stoke’s Michael O’Neill: ”They are a good opposition, they made it difficult for us. At half time we asked for a reaction and got that. We were excellent for the first 30 minutes, we were 1-0 up and in control of the game. I just felt we had control of the game, our play was a lot better, we scored a good goal and we looked like we were going to score another goal.”
