“There was no urgency to us,” said Moore of the first half. “We needed a reaction and we got it second half.

“It was much more like us in the second 45 minutes. We showed what the team was about and they struggled to recover.

“Second half the urgency was more there. There was more speed of thought, more patterns, more players moving earlier off the ball.

“They did show that desire, I could hear it on the pitch.

“In this game you’re not always going to win pretty, playing the perfect style.

“This season the team’s shown different ways to win the game and I have to be pleased because we’ve beaten a really good team.”
