‘Yeah, of course, my job is to stay even-tempered through it, right. In terms of my expectations and what I’m sort of communicating to the players for us as a group as what we need to do to keep progressing, that’s a different story.

‘I want our supporters dreaming of big games and big wins and winning things. I mean, that’s the role of us as a football club.

‘I’m sure they get enough of their bubble burst in their normal lives on a daily basis.

‘It doesn’t need me top bring them down and tell them, look, don’t come here too excited tomorrow because it might not go well.

‘I don’t think that’s my role. My role is to make sure they come bouncing in and hopefully we send them bouncing out.’
