More of the same: Dickman on Legia Warsaw

Elliott Dickman is asking for more of the same from his players when they take on Legia Warsaw on Wednesday evening (KO 7pm).

The under-23s head into the game searching for back-to-back wins in the PL International Cup, with their opening Group B outing resulting in a 2-0 win over Hertha Berlin.

Legia Warsaw, meanwhile, are yet to open their campaign and Dickman admits they’re somewhat of an unknown quantity, but he believes his players can rise to the occasion and clinch another big win.

“As far as the International Cup goes, we’ll be asking for more of the same after a good win over Hertha Berlin," said the under-23 boss.

“Hopefully we can get another victory but we’re going in somewhat blind because we don’t know too much about them, however, we’re going through what we have at the club and we’re ready for the game.”

He continued: “We have to make sure we’re competitive and work hard, but we also have to pass the ball well and make sure we produce the quality we’re capable of in the final third.

“We’ll have similar squad to the one we’ve had in recent weeks – Josh Maja won’t feature as he continues his rehab with the first team – and it’ll be another chance for the young lads to showcase themselves on a big stage.

“It’s also a good chance for the supporters to come down and catch a glimpse of the younger players against a European opposition, as it’s not something they can see every day.

“Above all, though, we want to get a good result and then do the same in our final group game against Leicester City.”
