Listen, we've got another tough game next week. maxbet The clean sheet might be important, that's certainly a positive. We won't be getting carried away.
"We understand maxbet and respect the opposition and we need a performance full of heroes and warriors next week.

We are also capable of getting an important away goal."It would be a shame (if we missed out on the group stages) - we've got to go there and make sure it's not a shame.
