Magnificent result, now to finish off the group stage phase with another win against Basel in the final fixture
1.12.19, Christopher Steegmann: ”The boys have responded to that defeat against Salzburg exactly how I wanted them to, by rallying and pushing on and putting together an extremely positive position and we’re up into second. We’ve now won all five of the Bundesliga games since that disappointing defeat including all three this month and we’ve played some very good football even though we’ve never really been able to put out our best starting XI week in week out. It’s testament to how strong this squad is because we’ve picked up some really good results with quite a few players in the physio’s room rather than on the pitch. We were expected to beat Floridsdorfer comfortably and perhaps it was disappointing to have conceded a goal to a side that are now really starting to struggle. Following on from that disappointing defeat to Standard Liege the boys responded really well by going on to beat Rheindorf Altach in a big game in the Bundesliga and finally we might be beginning to see the best of Blessing Eleke now which bodes really well for us moving forward. We deserved more from the St. Polten game in terms of goals scored but the performance against Olympiakos was incredible and we’ve picked up a huge three points in our bid to qualify from our Europa League group.”
CommentsScottT: It’s a stunning result against a team that have caused big problems for big sides in Europe in recent years! To have it in our hands though is excellent!
Justice: Why thank you
Griffo: Yes boyyyy
Jack: Qualifying would be an incredible achievement because we’re so unfancied in the grand scheme of things but I’m confident we can get the result we need
