He said: ‘It’s the worst pitch I’ve played on in my career.

‘They are where they are in the league but they’ve got some good players so we knew it would be tough.

‘We managed to grind it out, got the goal in the first half and the second one put it to bed.

‘It was a battle and we came out on top.’
