“We had to dig deeper and deeper for a point and we got it. We knew that they will come at us from the beginning of the game until the end.
“But we managed to keep them at bay because we told ourselves that if we manage to keep a clean sheet then we might get something out of the game.
“At least we got a point in the end, and that’s crucial for us.”
