“[It was a] really hard-fought victory at a place that is really tough to come and win,” he said.

“We started the game really well, we had some big phases where I saw a lot of things that we want as a team. We scored the goal, had some opening chances, but the moment we lost control.

“We started to give balls away after the first, second, third pass. Obviously, the game then becomes open, there is no control.

“Then you have to defend crosses and long balls and I thought we did that really, really well.

“We have players that do not have the best qualities to play that game, but I thought they did terrifically well.

“I think their commitment and the attitude that they showed throughout the game to win and find a way to win was the most pleasing thing for me.

“It builds confidence, trust and a belief that you can go through difficult moments in matches and still win.”
