„We are playing with confidence and without fear, and it is helpful when it’s possible to do this,“ Powell said. „We’ve been talking for the past three weeks about being at play-off fashion today and that has helped us.
„Everyone said we had a challenging run-in, but it has been perfect – it couldn’t be any better.

„It is in our hands today and I feel the players look motivated, they look hungry, they have trained really well, they’re playing each other and that is critical.
„They are going pretty fantastic Cas, it will be a hard game without any doubt. They’re desperate to complete in the five plus they have to do this on Thursday night.“
