Vladimir Labant has declared himself reasonably satisfied with his first 15 minutes in English football - and now he is looking forward to his Premiership debut.

Says Ludek Miklosko, giving the thoughts of the stylish left sided player: "I think he was very happy to get his first 15 minutes in England, and I think it was quite good for him because after his free-kick we scored a goal.

"It was a very good game, much better than the league game last time, and we showed that if we are working hard we can play against any team in the Premiership.

"I think he was very happy and I think he enjoyed it and it was a good experience for him."

Not that Vlado was over impressed with the pitch, and Ludo adds: "It wasn't the best, there is not too much grass on it, but still it was quite flat and not too bad."

As for the trip to Southampton, he adds: "There is quite a good chance that he will start the game and we will see how he feels. We spoke to him and asked him how his fitness is and he said he is nearly 100% fit, so we will see how he will do.

"As for Tomas, he knew he had made a few mistakes, but it ended well because nothing happened as a result, or he recovered, and I think he had quite a good game."
