"It's good to be top of the league again with four wins at home and four successive clean sheets, terrific."

"I wanted Nick Ross to come out to the right hand side and I think my guys thought I wanted him to come off.

"I said: 'what are you doing? I don't want you to play that wide. I went the fourth official Alan Muir and said 'that's the wrong man' but he said he couldn't do anything about.

"But luckily we were 3-0 up with about seven minutes to go."
