“It’s been a really good season and we’ve had good form a bit of a rocky start but it’s been a lot of fun. The boys get along well it’s really been an amazing season so far and I’m having a good time and I believe at this point all the other lads are as well. It’s just any other game, we know it’s a playoff game we know the occasion we’re here for a reason and we won our league for a reason so we just need to stick to our tactics,” Regragui said.
