“That’s the only way you’re going to challenge for something at the end of the season anyway, so it’s not something we talk about.

“The only thing we talk about and what we focus on is improving day by day and learning, and how to deal with certain situations and maybe right now we are getting praise and that’s something else to learn to deal with.”
