‘I feel like we were ahead and if we’d won it today, it would have been a lot easier,’ said the 32-year-old.

Wright said he was ‘not sure’ whether he would be able to take part in the 1pm kick off.
‘If I were to miss this game, I don’t think I’d play again,’ he added. ‘It’s disappointing but it’s something we’ll deal with.
‘If I was to be unavailable, it would be difficult for me to play and I’m not sure whether I would be able to play.’
