But after Young Lions scored, I was not worried as I knew I had the players to do the job and get us back into the game.
“We got caught (for the first goal) as we had been aggressive and were pressing maybe too hard early on, so we changed things after that and the team responded well. We’re trying to settle the title issue as soon as we can.
“Hopefully we can demoralise the rest of the teams with this lead we have.”
