Coach Quotes

Speaking ahead of Friday’s game, Peet said: “It is important that you pick up wins and build up form. It’s important that you train well and maximise every minute on the training field.

“Every game seems crucial at the moment with the way it’s stacked throughout the table so every two points is critical and trying to find your best form going into the knockout stages, equally so.”
