Coaches Quotes

Matt Peet spoke to the press on Wednesday afternoon ahead of the visit to West Yorkshire.

He said: “There’s some things we did well last week that we’ll look to replicate, and some areas which we want to improve. We’re a young team, we’re a young coaching staff and there’s no reason why we can’t have better performances ahead of us.”
