Ahead of the game, Nigel Adkins said, “It’s another tough game. The stats will indicate that they’re number one for directness in their play. They’re a big side, so we know set pieces will be a threat. We know we’ve got to defend well. Likewise, when we’ve got the football, we have to be very efficient on how we use it.
“At the end of the season, the league table won’t lie. We’re at a stage at the moment where our focus is just on the next game. Make sure we get the behaviours right through the course of the week. Give ourselves the best opportunity to plan and prepare as best we can to go into a game and give our best.”
