"It's going to be one to look forward to and to also feel a lot of butterflies and nerves throughout the week.

"We have to manage that with the players and staff. The players deserve that.

"They deserve the opportunity because of how brave they've been, how much belief and understanding they have now and what they're doing, how much they've stuck with it even when it's been a bit bumpy at times.

"I said that from day one, it wasn't going to be easy to change a style of play and a culture and a club that had a tough, tough year the year before.

"They've deserved the opportunity, they've earned it.

"They've earned every single bit of it and now they have to really make the most of it. Tonight was a beautiful moment for us.

"We've had so many here this season. The fans were incredible but we have a chance to have a better moment next week. So we have to make sure that's the case."
