“We had to address our problems which was conceding too many goals and not creating enough chances.”

Wild added: “We knew what Fondop would bring, we knew what Denton would bring, so we just went to war with them.

“We didn’t give them an inch, squeezed them high and put two players in front of them (Fondop and Denton) so that when things did drop off we could back tackle.

“I had a change of shape and a lot of my thought process was around stopping Fondop and runners behind like Gevaro who is a threat given space and time.”
