Parker said: "As you could see tonight, all of the guys were on the front foot and were all clear, with no cloudy minds.

"Our intentions were good and we managed to create a number of chances and were also solid at the back.

"From now I think there will be a lot of victories down the line."

Meanwhile, Parker felt he was personally rewarded for paying scant regard to his critics.

"To be honest, I have received a lot of criticism, even though my ankle is not 100 percent healed with there still being pain.

"I managed to work on myself mentally and today I think it worked. I was composed, didn't care about anything else and just focused on my game."
