New York City FC Head Coach Ronny Delia:

On confidence heading into the playoffs...

"We are very confident, but we need to be humble. We need to understand a playoff game is a difficult game. We need to be ready, but with a smile on our face. That is important because that's when we are at our best."

New York City FC Forward Gary Mackay-Steven

On his form heading into the playoffs after a tough season...

"I never lost the confidence and you just keep going. The chances keep coning and we're in a good moment as a team. We've played well. We're creating a lot of chances. It's nice to be on the end of one. It's more enjoyable to play in winning teams and we've managed to string a few wins together now. It's an important time of the season and it's a good feeling amongst the camp now."
