"These are make or break games for us, but we will go into both ties with no fear," stated the rugged centre-back.
"We are used to certain situations and are also convinced that we have what is needed to re-emerge.
"I never take to the field with the idea that we are going to lose and I'm not going to start now.
"Nevertheless, this is a game where we can see a home win, a draw or an away win. It'll be a balanced game as all these ties are."
