Bradley not settling for opening Stabaek victory

New Stabaek manager Bob Bradley got his side of to a winning start in the Norwegian Tippeligaen on the weekend.

The former USA national team boss, who took the reins at the Nadderud Stadion in January, led the Blue Ones to a 3-0 season-opening win over Sogndal on Saturday.

Following the triumph, Bradley was already targeting their second fixture and beyond as Stabaek get set to take on the likes of SK Brann and Molde.

"We are not after just one win," Bradley told reporters after the match.

"We have several tough games ahead of us, but we should enjoy this. It is important that players get to know the winning feeling after a tough camp."

Bradley added: "We have struggled to keep clean sheets in the winter, so it is especially good to do it.

"At times, we had good pace and good passing, but in between, we fell in too deep and were forced to hit long balls."
