Ernie Merrick said ( about Roy Krishna ) : "I'm not big on this thing called momentum, but I am big on confidence and there's no doubt that when you win games like that the confidence grows," "And when you've got confident players, you've got players that want the ball all the time and can really show what you can do. I thought we started off extremely well and played some really good football, then we kind of dropped away, then we picked up again. When you score goals like Roy did it makes life easier and we just hung on there at the end" External link
