Ismael

said:

“Congratulations to the guys for the performance and the mentality on the pitch.

“It was a tough game – it was exactly as we expected against Millwall. We were prepared for the direct game today. That’s why we put a lot of bodies and physicality in the starting XI today, to compete at that level.

“I think we started very well and we scored quickly. To concede the goal was really poor. There was a concentration failure.

“After that it was a fight and a 50/50 situation on the game. In the second half we made a tactical change to have more pace behind.

“Today was a great team effort. To show a desire to keep moving and stay on the winning way.

“For sure, it was another game and it was another fight but we did it and we won and it’s a great feeling tonight.”
