“The good things are that we were at least as good as them, winning 3-0 and if everybody had asked if we would have taken a point before the game, we would have said yes.

“It is one point and it is true, we were winning 3-0 but you cannot forget that it is against one of the best teams in the league.”

He added: “We could have scored a fourth and fifth, but we didn’t and they had a lot of chances to score.

“We have to take the good things. It is a point against a very good team who are on a good run and now we have another challenge on Saturday.
