They have won just eight of their 27 league matches, drawing more games than any other team as they’ve shared the points on 13 occasions.

“The team reacted straight away and we started to dominate the game and impose ourselves, create the chances and score the goals.

“And then just before half-time, again, a big disappointment to concede the goal from another set-piece, but again we went back into the game, we started to play, we started to dominate the game again.
