Steve Cotterill's Post Match Comments:

"It's a great win for us, a great place to come to and it was great for me on a personal note because I had a great time here as well as for Frank and Ade.

"I thought the first half was a poor game, of which we contributed to but in the second half I thought we were the better team and a 1-0 scoreline reflected that.

"It's terrific for the lads because they didn't deserve to lose to Leeds, so getting the three points was great for us.

"We passed it better in the second half and created the better chances too.

"Half time was a bit noisy for five minutes - I wasn't happy with the lads and they weren't happy with themselves. The first half was a bit like pulling teeth.

"I thought we were the better team in the second half and deserved our narrow win."

"I wanted Ade to score tonight. I was a little surprised at the Leicester fans, because the one thing he does do is give his all.

"He might not have scored many goals at Leicester, but I'm pretty sure he would have given his all here.

"I think the Leicester fans are great and I enjoyed my time here but I think they probably don't know Ade personally because they wouldn't have given him a reception like that.

"It was a bit unlike the Leicester fans, but I suppose you could say it was written that Ade would score.

"It's great for him, he's as honest as the day is long and I think he gets whatever he deserves in this life and he's a terrific lad who trains as hard as he plays."
