@simonatkinson86 – “The dream lives on...! Why do we make it tough at the end of matches though?”

@AravindRamesh19 – “Needlessly nervy at the end, but some nice stuff until Almiron went off - excelled in the free role! Cracking atmosphere as always.”

@Kevwoodh24 – “Buzzing to be in the next round of the cup, mental that we’ve got arguably our worst manager for years and he’s got us further in the cup than at others better before him. So #nufc that mind.”
