Pre-Match Quotes:

Mark Robins:

“They've got some good players in their squad, and they pose a threat and we've seen that in the two games.

“They've had some good chances in those games that they just haven't managed to take but ultimately, it's down to us down to what we do.

“We've built up some momentum and some confidence and I’ve just been watching some of our games and some of our footage in preparation for this one and we are looking good in a lot of areas at the moment, but there's still there's still improvements, still tweaks we can make.

“We’re really looking forward to the game, there's no doubt about that. I think it's going to be a really good game."
