I felt they had a lot of possession at times but didn’t really penetrate us that much, we defended really well and then went ahead.“The back three were immense today, all of them, especially Boly aside me, he just wins absolutely everything and takes it off people one-v-ones, nobody can get round him. It’s good that we were able to keep the clean sheet.“It was great to get the first league win, especially at home in front of another packed out crowd. It’s nice to get the first win on the board, even though it’s taken a bit longer than we would have expected.“This result has brought us a bit of relief, obviously we would’ve wanted it to come earlier than it has, because the longer that it doesn’t happen you start to get itchy. But I felt we played well today and thoroughly deserved to win.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
