It comes following a string of impressive cameos off the bench from Facundo, which includes his recent debut against Charlton, along with some notable work on the training ground.
Our no.28 told us that he was asked to simply continue what he’s been doing well, but this time from the off, ahead of Thursday’s game.
“The message from the boss and also my team-mates was to do what I know to do on the pitch, what I’ve been doing in training,” Pellistri added.
“That’s why I am playing because of all the work I do in training, that was the message. If you do well in training, then you are ready to play so that’s why I was confident, and the coach and everyone gave me that confidence.
“He told me to run in behind, to have the ball, to take care of the ball and to track back to defend.
“More or less, that’s what I tried to do and as I already said, the win is the most important [thing].”
