He said

: “I think that we showed character because I remember last season and the season before when we would be 1-0 down, we’d always struggle to come back.

“We would start to panic and maybe we couldn’t come back. But this time we believed in each other on the pitch, didn’t panic and in the end, I think we deserved that win.

“We again scored three goals and showed the team spirit we have and a very different character from last season and the year before.”

This victory over Well out them at the top of the table with 16 points but Barisic does not say that his squad is claiming the title.

“I think our mentality now is much different and I can see that especially in this last game (against Motherwell). I can’t remember a game (previously) where we were 1-0 down and that we didn’t panic and kept playing to our game plan so I think there is a much different mentality from our squad, which is very good and I think our results show that.”
