"It was a much better workout for us.

"Obviously the first couple of matches have been a bit easier to play in but you've still got to adopt a professional approach to those type of games, tackle them in the right way and keep doing the right things.

"This final game was a better test - you can see that from the sweat that was pouring off a few of the lads' bodies.

"They gave us a good game and that's just what we need before a big game against Feyenoord at the weekend."

"Although we didn't play in a big stadium, we played against a good side with seven or eight of their normal first team alongside a couple of triallists, including a Brazilian up front who was out to impress.

"I'm glad we had a reaction after their equalising goal, because it was important that we didn't just let the game peter out. We were a little bit loose in possession but we were trying to go forward and win the game, and eventually we did through Seol.

"I think it was a good workout for us, but it was obviously spoiled by the sending off."
