On The Final Four Games 

"The important thing is concentrate on what we can do. We've got four games left, the next game is the most important game, it's tough against one of my former clubs. I'm not concerned about Stoke at all."

On Stoke City 

"This one is special and I've got a lot of time for Peter Coates and the family there. He was a fantastic chairman for me at such a young age and he's such a special person and the football club is in really good hands with the way the family look after it - similar to how Steve does here." 

On The Club

"With good people in charge and stability, you've got a greater chance at success. It's a good club, things are in the right position and there's still things for us to improve on and that's very important. But I'm focused on the next four games coming up - and the next one is the most important one."
