Audio interview with John Gannon from Radio Nottingham (RealPlayer needed)

Ian Holloway :
"It was a disappointing result for us. We have to sort ourselves out. We went 1-0 up and we looked as if everyone might as well go home. There was 70 minutes left and yet the players looked like they thought we had this won.
"We showed character to get back, but we need to be more organised and to learn how to come back from being behind. We spoke at half time and we knew that 10 men can be difficult to beat. You never know though - that point might be vital by the end of it.
"But how many chances didn't go in? On another day the players we have in our team would have finished off more than that. We didn't let our heads drop but I feel that when we are expected to do well and things aren't going for us - it affects us too much.
"Too many of them let things get to them and we must be stronger for the run in."
