Manager Graham Alexander has admitted that he was pretty pleased with a point at full time in the game against Chesterfield yesterday.
Another clean sheet on the day helped us to a point that keeps us top of the table at this very early stage of the season and also means our first year in League One sees us become the first side in the league to have now reached double figures in our points tally - and that should again do confidence the world of good.
Speaking to the Official Site following the full time whistle the gaffer explained.
'It was a tough game for us. We weren't at our best, especially in the first half. In the second half we showed what we're about and threatened Chesterfield a couple of times and played on the front foot.'
Alexander was obviously delighted with the clean sheet and he added that the group were happy with that because it's proof of all the hard work they have been doing in training to make sure we are difficult to beat.
'We've got ten points out of four games and we have got to maintain those standards and make sure we don't let ourselves slip. It's important that when things aren't going as smoothly as we want that we don't get frustrated and go gung ho and lose games which we did last season, especially at home, we lost a few games where we definitely should have at least drawn.'
The gaffer goes on to say that this was a big lesson he wanted the team to learn this campaign and they have done a lot of work on it over the summer, because especially at this level when we aren't 100% individual points can be vital come the end of the campaign and when you aren't at our best, coming out with something is far better than nothing at all.
Adding that he knows he's something to learn there himself in terms of staying calm because he knows he gets as frustrated as the players, because he knows what we are capable of and it's disappointing when we don't click like that all the time - but that is the game.
'I was just pleased that for the second half we got a response, the players responded themselves, they knew that they hadn't been at it and second half they did something about it.'
