“We’re players with an awful lot of experience and we know how to play under pressure. It depends on the other team too, they can make life hard for you. We always come out with focus and desire and sometimes things go well, sometimes less so. We’re growing, there are always ups and downs over the course of a season and we have to keep going,” he said.
