"The counterfeit turf didn't help us that much in light of the fact that many passes were cut and we committed a great deal of errors in light of the fact that our players thought they were playing on an ordinary pitch. 

"The fake turf was new and heavier however all things considered the resistance was what we anticipated. We knew there were three regions they can damage and it is progress from safeguard to assault where they are extremely amazing and solid, and it was a dress practice for our game against Golden Arrows. 

"The subsequent one is their risk on the wide channels with amazing fullbacks who are continually covering. We expected that and that is the thing that emerged from the match. The third is set-pieces where we realized they are exceptionally hazardous. 

"They are forceful on set-pieces. They go after each ball and those are the three principle regions we expected in the match."
