“We know we will create chances so we have to take those chances and remain safe at the back, we have to be careful.
“When it’s over two legs, you have to play with the overall result in mind, but we have to win the first leg. It’s at home and we want to win. It’s important to keep a clean sheet as well so to win 1-0 would be a good result.”
Gus reiterated his message for the fans to crank up the volume again on Thursday night. “It’s been fantastic in the last few games at home and what about the final? That was amazing!
“It’s something the players love and when you feel that extra from the fans, it’s much easier. I’m sure the crowd will be unbelievable at White Hart Lane and that will help us.”
