Matt Doherty: “We’re in the position where we want to win the game for other reasons, for our league position, and the fact we’re at home and we just back ourselves – obviously we back ourselves against every team – but our record shows against the bigger teams that we tend to really fancy it on the night. We’re at home so we’re going in to the game thinking we can win.”
