“We responded very well, win against Dwarfs and we win today, I’m very pleased with that,” he said.

“To make sure Zibo and Addo weren’t comfortable on the ball. I emphasised on pressing them high as soon as they had the ball. I was happy my tactics really worked.
“Any team that will face us is not going to be easy for us. No body is going to have an easy ride with us. We will work all the way till the ninety minutes,” he added.
