Brian on his full backs...
I spoke to Gunter yesterday. I said if you want the shirt, you’ve got to take it. I spoke to Cummings as well. Chris Gunter started the season, then Cummings came into the team. We had a few individual errors, he came out of the team. Gunter, in my opinion is a better player than he showed on Saturday, and I told him that. I said to him you need to show that. Because at the moment it’s a toss of the coin between the two of them.
Brian on the January window...
The January window is notoriously a tough window. I think you’re looking at players that can make a difference, players that have played in this division – any players that are established in this division cost a fortune, an absolute fortune.
Generally what he’s doing is working with the under 21s, working with Chris Cummins. He’s such a good influence and having him around has been really important for us.
