ON THE PERFORMANCE AGAINST MAN UTD: "Any time you take a point off of Man United it's a good result.

"Obviously you want to win your home games but we started the game without Ledley (King), who failed a fitness test before the game. We then we lost Jonathan Woodgate after about five minutes so we knew it was going to be a tough old evening.

"To come through as we did I though was fantastic. It was a terrific performance, a really hard-working performance."

ON THE FORM OF GOALKEEPER HEURELHO GOMES: "I've got confidence in him. Whether I bring another goalkeeper onto the staff is another matter.

"He's been excellent and if he can keep these performances up we haven't got a problem. But I'd like to bring in another keeper as cover or someone to battle it out with him."

ON LEDLEY KING'S ONGOING FITNESS BATTLE "Playing Saturday-Wednesday is impossible. If you get 20 games a year out of him, it's 20 games you've got a better chance of winning, He's that important to us - and he's a great lad as well. He deserves to be looked after."
