“We had one `gift` and we thought one `gift` was sufficient and we thought two was excessively and after that the third `gift`.
“The principal `gift` was to play Monday and after that the following `gift` is 10 men and after that third was to have a promenade on the M6 (motorway), yet we are proficient so the following morning we were here to prepare and a similar today and tomorrow (Thursday)
“The fans will give us this additional vitality so we trust that tomorrow we can adapt to the circumstance and battle to be in the quarter-last.”
