"We'll get the team prepared and go and give it our best shot again.

"This is football and if you don't do it right, you'll get a large kick in your proverbials.

"It's all about keeping focused now and the players know what is required at all times.

"We'll continue to keep the standards really high as well as the motivation levels and just carry on as we have been.

"We've won six on the trot and it's still neck and neck, so nothing has been achieved yet.
