"This was not what we planned for Our game plan failed us in the first half but we came into the second half very strong but the damage was already done," Biffo told media.

"The tactics we adopted did not work for us and we performed poorly in the first half. We were unlucky because we had some clear cut chances to come back into the game but we couldn't make them count.
