That’s maybe surprising to say when you play against a side with their quality but what impressed me most was the work ethic of the performance. We played with a system that we haven’t used in a while and I was surprised to see them match us up. I thought we were on top at the start of the game and then when they changed their system up, I thought we were even better. We did everything that the staff and I asked of them."
