Having learned our opponents, head coach Darbyshire said: "We're really looking forward to the challenge of facing FC Twente. We'll be working really hard over the coming months to make sure that we're fully prepared to compete. 

"The experience last year was new for most of us; we learned so much from the campaign and saw the standard that we need to get to. Hopefully, we can take what we learned last year into this season."
