"I am very happy because in the first part of the season for us it is not easy to gain points. We have passion, commitment and desire". We hit the bar twice - once when we were 1-0 down after conceding a very unlucky goal from a deflection.

"You have to use your chances and (luck) wasn't on our side unfortunately, so we keep going and keep working, it's only the first game".
