We have to go with the mentality and thinking like the one in the game with FMP, with a lot of energy and we have to play our signature game. Running, a lot of aggressiveness in defense. Although I admit that we didn't really have enough time to prepare the way I want. However, the boys are doing everything to do a good job in training and I hope we can carry that into the game ", said Dejan Jakara, coach of SC Derby.
