“I think people are a bit nervous but we haven’t had a game for a couple of weeks so everyone’s looking forward to getting back playing ” said Coombs.

 

“It’s the biggest game, probably the first one everyone looked for when the fixtures came out, so it’s probably a mixture of nerves and excitement, but we’ll go and we’re prepared so we’ll see what happens.

 

“Training has been good, we’ve had some tough sessions, but it’s all been coming together and everyone is really positive and everyone’s looking forward to the challenge of the game.

 

“We’re taking each game as it comes, we’ve got a plan and if we execute the plan then we’ll see what happens. Obviously, we’re going to try and win every game that we play, but we know that they’re a good side, they’ve got a lot of good players.”  

 

When focused on the opposition, Coombs is confident that the pressure will be on the opposition. 

 

“I think the pressure is on Manchester United really. They dropped points a couple of weeks ago so the pressure is going to be on them to win convincingly. We’re underdogs so we can go with no pressure, play and see how we get on.

 

“We want to keep going as long as we can unbeaten, but honestly we’re taking every game as it comes and we’re learning about each other more and more every week.”
