The tactical and systematic preparation that goes into styling a team’s game plan often goes unnoticed when a side has players consistently performing at high level.

This whirlwind of incoming and outgoing players has not harmed the chemistry within the side, however, and Lindberg feels they are even more unified now than when he initially took charge last year.
