When asked if he was pleased with his triumph at Bramall lane he responded, “It could have been more comfortable. We were a little sloppy at 3-1 up. The corner that led to the second goal wasn’t a corner but when it goes in it was really difficult because they are a handful.”
“I thought all three goals were excellent. I wanted to test them here today, we knew it was going to be a physical test. The fight, we are going to get kicked. It is one of these games the boys will learn from,” he added.
