Head Coach John van 't Schip discusses his side's 2-0 triumph over the North Queensland Fury at AAMI Park on Sunday.

We will for sure be there having a big chance to claim a place in the Hyundai A-League Finals Series. It-s going to be very close, that-s one thing we already know.

With Victory winning their game and Newcastle having games to catch up with, we needed to win against North Queensland Fury that was one thing we all knew.

It was a very difficult game, there was a kind of tension, in the team, and that-s normal as well, but we did very well. We kept organised and disciplined in the way of playing, then after the first goal, we got more belief and of course a little bit more space to play, although we deserved the win.

I had the sensation that we were not really free in our play, but after the goal, we had more space, and we started playing a little bit more with confidence. The confidence was there in the first half, but maybe just the tempo of the game, the decision making could be a bit faster.

Then you get the chance, that good ball in front of the goal, the pass to the right player was sometimes just a moment too late, but we didn-t give a lot away, and created still a few chances.
