“We know that the game is probably going to be a little more open.

“We know that they are going to come at us because it’s their home game and they will want to score. But we are confident we can score away goals.

“In the majority of the away games we’ve played in the competition up to this point we have scored an away goal. We know we can nick a goal.

“We are going there full of confidence after the first leg where in the first half we felt we really dominated the game.

“In the second half they sat back and were very organised even though we were still able to create a couple of chances.”
