“He maybe took 25 minutes to get going, but once he got going, he made a difference for us.
“We’re happy with his contribution. It’s important we get Paul on the ball, whether it’s low in the pitch or higher in between the lines.
“I know he started off wide while defending, but we wanted him to make runs in behind and get on the ball. His physical presence is important for us because we knew they are one of the strongest sides physically in the league.
“We needed players to match them and Paul showed his strength and skill for Anthony’s goal. Tonight I was delighted with his performance.”
