"This was a very important victory for us. After conceding the goal we were able to react, albeit with a bit of luck. That is also part of football. This was a very hard fought win and we must congratulate the team for the work that we did, both defensively and in attack. We players are the first to want to win. The most important thing is to take points in threes, and this is a big win for us at a tough ground -against a side who play very good football. We had what was required to get something from the game. We have to look at every match individually, as points are awarded in the present and not the future. This victory gives us confidence for Sunday's game against a team at a high level."
