Video & Quotes from the boss ahead of tonight's game at Norwich...

  • Importance of cup competitions…

"This club is probably built on the history of club competitions. If you go back to ’98 against Newcastle in the FA Cup. After that we played Newcastle again and Spurs. 

Our history is based on club competitions, we built this training ground through cup runs, so I understand how important a cup run is. 

If we get a Premier League club home or away, it could be huge for the football club. That’s the vision that I’m telling the players. It’s possible, we’re not that far away from it."

  • Dino on Norwich…

"They’re a big club. They’ve got history of the premier league, they are probably a premier league club in the championship. They are what we they are, we focus on what we are. We are Stevenage and we’re going to go there and make sure we impose ourselves. 

We’re not going to play the occasion, we’ll play eleven against eleven and make sure we’re better prepared technically, tactically and physically better than them. That’s what I’ve prepared the team to do."

  • Dino on Danny Newton injury concern…

"Danny Newton is out. We think he broke his rib, he might be out for a week or two. So, he won’t be travelling with the squad to Norwich."  

  • Dino on momentum from Saturday… 

"That’s why I want to go to every game approaching the same way. We want to win, it would be fantastic to win. Back at home on Saturday, three wins in a week would look fantastic. I’m sure we’re heading in the right direction, it’s a week we’re looking forward to."
