He said: "We worked hard, the boys did well and we scored three goals It was a good game. maybe we had chances to score more goals.

"Everybody knows we're in a difficult moment and scoring goals and winning games is the best medicine to get our confidence back. Let's hope it is a boost for the coming Saturday."
