“I can’t affect the weather, you might have a break and then in January it teems down.

“I know supporters love it, but this is a personal opinion, nothing else, I think Christmas is family time.

“If Christmas was at a weekend, you might have to suffer it and play Boxing Day, but it’s play Saturday and play Saturday for me, although I understand the reasons why we do it.”
