“We know exactly what has to be done to secure the place in the quarter-finals and we are looking forward to going out and hopefully achieving that target,” he said.

“The victories earlier in the pool have put us in a good position whereby we just need to win our final home match at home to secure a quarter-final place.

“That is a good position to be in but there is a job to be done on Friday and the players are looking forward to carrying out that task.”
