These are the initial comments from Rafa:
“Vurnon Anita is back from suspension and everyone who was available on Wednesday is available again.”
“We have to ensure the players are prepared for Saturday. We have done some tactical adjustments today.”
“The players didn’t give up. For our fans to know the players have the belief, working until the end, that is important for the future.”
“Wednesday night was like a final. It was massive and I’m really proud. These nights you will remember all your life.”
“It wasn’t a crucial game, but it was important for the confidence of the team and for what we want to do this season.”
“Analysing the games, they aren’t as bad as the table says. They have good players up front and are well organised.”
“We have to be prepared right mentally. We have the experience of losing after QPR so we need the players to keep their concentration.”
