The 49-year-old coach said:
"We are looking to build on the performances and we have been really pleased with the performances but we need to extend that 90 minutes.

"So the performance levels have been really good it is now a case of extending those and those will lead to the results we need.
"We have been focusing on performances and we do believe performances will lead to results."
