“I wasn’t out of breath but the players sure were,” he said. “It was a great game, just exactly how I expected it to be. I just knew it would be a tough game. Leeds are a really dangerous side and I’m just really happy to come away with the win.“I wanted us to stay patient. I thought for major of periods of the second half we didn’t touch the ball at times and they edged themselves in front. We were trying to score every two minutes – I just wanted them to be patient.“To then finish the way we did was great. Danny played a massive part in that and it was outstanding for a young kid to kick the goal and then the field goal.”He continued: “I thought our game management in the end was outstanding and that’s pleasing because you’ve got to win in all different fashions. That should give us a lot of confidence knowing we can be behind and finish the game off like that.“Danny is a confident young fella; he would have expected to kick both and he did.“You need that in all your players and in particular in half backs. They’re going to be the big play moment type players, like the clutch players of basketball. You need them to deliver and he did that tonight.”
