"We’re just taking it a game at a time. We know we’re strong - we’re contenders. We’re just doing our part. Now, we’ll recover and go again.


"We’re just focused on one game at a time. Today, it was really difficult and it will be a difficult run-in but we’re focused.

"Massive win. Difficult in first half to break them down. Really compact and solid Came out second half got slight luck needed.


"We kept going, kept pressing got what we deserved."
