TEAM TALK v TRANMERE, 12/3/13

12 March 2013

Boss poud of his players...

WE CAME away from promotion-chasing Swindon Town with a hard-earned point on Saturday having twice come from behind against a very good team.

We were the better side in the first half and they had the edge after the break, but having said that, I felt that we started the second period well and with purpose.

The goals that we conceded were unfortunate and disappointing but at the other end, we scored a couple of good goals ourselves and generally caused them problems with our attacking play. In fact, we should have had another penalty just before they got their second, but it was not to be.

It shows how far we have come that we were disappointed at the end not to have taken all three points.

The lads are a credit to the club; they are giving me everything and I expect them to continue to do so.

We are playing with confidence and showing our ability as we continue progressing and developing as a group.

We now have two home games on the spin to look forward to, starting against Tranmere Rovers. They have had a fantastic season and maintained their challenge at the top throughout. It’s full credit to Ronnie Moore who has turned their fortunes around this term and made them a well-organised and difficult outfit to beat.

We played out at goalless draw at their place earlier in the season at a time when we weren’t in the best form and created enough changes to have won on that occasion, so hopefully we can make home advantage count on Tuesday evening.

We have received outstanding backing from our fans recently. There was a large and vocal following here for our last home game to create a great atmosphere that we thrived on and then at the County Ground on Saturday we had more excellent support from the travelling contingent.

More of the same is needed on Tuesday and on Saturday for the visit of Crawley Town.

Thank you for your valued support…

DEAN SMITH
