Q: What have you made of your team’s start to the season?

A: Fantastic season. Delighted to be heading back to the Championship.

Q: What are your opinions on your manager?

A: A bit one-dimensional at times. Has one game plan and he sticks to it. But I can't complain about promotion. Needs to adapt to the Championship quickly next season though.
