    They looked really tired at the end of both halves, whereas I would say fitness is one of our strengths.

    If we keep the tempo high at home I can see us winning fairly comfortably. If we let the game slow it will play into their hands, especially if it’s a one goal swing towards the end.

    Also felt they were afraid of us, especially Forrest, Edouard and Christie. They seemed to back off and give them a lot of space. Maybe it was nerves about losing away goals but if they play like that again I can’t see us not scoring a few.

    Bolingoli and Morgan were both really poor last night.

    When I saw the team sheet first thought was Morgan would struggle. They types of games you need players making the right decisions and that is the weakest part of his game. Having him and Bolingoli on the same side was almost suicidal.

    Hopefully Johnston is back for the return because if we have him attacking I can’t see hem handling it.

    Aye I don’t think Morgan has enough in him to be played in these types of high pressure away legs.
    At home and against SPL teams he’d probably be fine.

    I thought Morgan did alright. He was kicked up and down the park in the first half.

    Their away form in this years Champions League is nothing great. Lost 1-0 away to Astana and drew 2-2 away with Maccabi Tel Aviv. Certainly agree with you that we have a lot to do yet but hopefully with the away goal and home advantage we can kick on and complete the job next week.
