The Premier League outfit defeated Oscar’s men 2-1 at the KC Stadium, however the Spaniard says the belief in the squad is still evident.
"The players are still very confident because they want to win every game," he told "Sometimes that's not always possible but we are going there to have a go and we'll be trying to return with the three points.
"It'll be tough because they're playing really well at home but we are looking forward to the challenge."

Oscar also praised new signing Jesse Lingard's versatility following the striker's arrival from Manchester United on a 93-day loan.  
"He took part in training today and yesterday and he looked good. He's very versatile and he can play across all of the attacking positions.
"He's a good finisher and we're hopeful he can be a good addition to the squad.
“He's come from Manchester United, one of the biggest clubs in the world, but more important than where he comes from is his quality.
"We're pleased to have him because he gives us something different."​

Lingard had a spell with Birmingham City earlier this season
Lingard has capped a busy couple of days by being named in the England under-21 squad and Albion’s Spanish head coach added that he enjoys working with young players.
“They [the young players] want to improve and they want to be better and they want to play in the best teams they can.
“They train well and so I like to coach young players – but also experienced players, and the ones we have are also trying to improve so I am very pleased.”
