“We were no threat in the first half and there were some things which I really did not like.”

Siewert also stressed that the task he has taken on at Town is not a tougher one than he envisaged.

I am 36 years old and I knew this would be difficult.

“But I am brave and I am a fighter and I will still fight with the right attitude.”
