From what everyone has been saying, our appointment seemed to give everyone a lift at the weekend and the crowd was fantastic. You could see the difference they made.

"Our intention is to pick up results quickly because there is a good squad here that has probably under-achieved. That is something we want to put right as quickly as possible...
