What the coach is saying

Danny Byrne: “It’s another big weekend and we go into it in positive mood.

“We came unstuck in Glasgow last weekend in the Cup semi second leg and, in truth, we were shattered after the big overtime win on Friday against the Phoenix.

“That said, we’ve learned from where we went wrong and had a good week of practice and we go into the games this weekend with the feeling they are both winnable.

“The games are coming thick and fast and we’ve no time to dwell on things too long. We just have to get out there and get on with it. The players are in positive mood and so am I.”
