David Gill has his opinions aired for the second time in a week, this time
explaining the reasons for the new pitch:

"It's been a very wet winter. When we put this pitch down, we didn't realise
we'd have twice as many games as we expected, with the FA and League
Cup home draws. This will be the last time this season."

"We're putting down some very good turf on Wednesday which will bed in on
Friday - that gives us a week before the derby,"
