Fraser said, ”It’s advantageous to score twice late on in a game as it is then difficult for the opponent to come back. I was made aware from certain people that we had not won a home game since February.

”I thought that we were really poor first half and we showed a lack of energy but we more than made up for that we the energy that we showed in the 2nd half where we played good football and scored twice.

”At half time in the dressing room we spoke about things together such as not showing enough initiative in the opening stages of the game. We have a lot of good players in our squad who all have specific qualities and in the case of Lewis Baker I was delighted that he decided to stay another season here in Arnhem.

” There is no doubt that we need to improve in regards to how we function as a team. We have achieved our first home victory of the season and we hope to win our home games more often this season.”
