WILFRIED NANCY

"We suffered too much lately not to take the three points today. We won this game without being good in the play and that's ok. But I'm happy for the players because they worked really hard. For Mason, his advantage is that he does a lot of individual work in front of the net in training. I'm not surprised at all today. He is good and feels good in this team so it's good for us. The fact that we work well, that the players believe in the project, doesn't surprise me with these results. I wish we would have been rewarded a little bit more though. Again, the first part of the season is interesting, knowing we could have done better."

MASON TOYE

"I practice, I work hard and I believe that every time I play I'm going to score. I knew I was going to get some playing time at some point, so I kept my focus and made sure that when I went on the pitch, I was going to give it my all. We didn't win a game in a while so for us to end with a win is massive. We know we can keep that going. We needed to find a way to win a game and that's what we did today."

RUDY CAMACHO

"It wasn't a nice game, but we took the three points. It's different from games before where we played well without taking the points. It wasn't a good game on both sides but these are tough games and I'm happy to leave with the three points. It's good for the moral before the break. I'm proud of my team this season. We have a lot of fun together. We can do great things if we keep going with this state of mind."
