“How far we can go depends on how well we can perform. One thing I know: this is a group of players who want to do well. And when you have a group of players who are desperate to perform well, you never know what can happen and I certainly don’t want to be the head coach of a team that thinks it has no chance of winning.” Chris Hughton said in an interview after the match.
