On the game:

“We deserved three points. That’s a performance that deserves maximum points. I’m really proud of the guys. If I look at it, I have to give credit to the staff because the plan that was put together in such a short amount of time—it was spot on. It allowed the players to understand what they were going to see. It allowed structure in the way that we were going to defend and the way we were going to go in to attack. Then it opened up their minds to be able to be creative and express themselves. Which is the goal as a staff, allowing them to be themselves when those moments come in and that’s not just the attacking players, that’s the defensive players, that’s the goalkeeper. So, I’m just really proud and that was my message after the game. We talked about character for the last seven days and that is character. That’s a character game, because we are up a goal. We miss a penalty, we are up a goal and then we concede a penalty and we go 1-1. There are two options for the group. They can either feel sorry for themselves, slip, or we can battle to get the result that we deserve. The reaction to that moment was really, really pivotal in the game. To be honest, I think the expected goals is exactly spot on. We did an unbelievable job of absorbing pressure in a way that we had talked about absorbing pressure and then it was the quality when we did win the ball to be able to create the chances that we did. So, just extremely excited for the guys and I hope everybody saw what that meant. You could see at the end of the game what it meant. Tonight you could see what that meant and it’s a springboard to what this group can do.”

On if Kenny Bundy has inspired the guys since taking over:

“I was saying earlier that before Kenny (Bundy) was appointed, I already knew him. He’s a great guy. Since he’s been appointed, we just had great vibes. He’s a motivator. There’s not there’s not anything bad I can say about him. So that’s very important for us. He believes in every one of us. He’s given me full liberty to play my style and wants the front three, all of us to do what we have to do to create chances. That gives us a lot of confidence. That’s the most important thing. After that, we also have the tactics that we have to live by and play by. There’s a lot of plays that we have to make as individuals and professionals to get results.”
