Wide-man stays positive...

WIDE-man, James Baxendale, made a positive impression when he entered the action during the second half of Saturday’s home reverse at the hands of Bradford City.

The Yorkshireman came off the bench as part of a triple change by manager, Dean Smith just after the hour-mark and put in a lively display as he stakes his claim for a return to the starting line-up.

“The boys came off disappointed at the end, as we always do when we lose,” he said. “Looking back, our ‘keeper didn’t have too many saves to make during the course of the game.

“There wasn’t much in it during the first half but then they scored with a wonder-goal right on the stroke of half-time and followed it up with a second straight after the restart.

“It gave us a lot to do, but I felt that we kept the ball well in their half for the majority of the second half and created more than our fair share of chances. We just didn’t have the luck to go with it.

“The gaffer made a triple change on the hour and we came on determined to get us back into the game. Maybe had we taken one of our opportunities it would have been a different outcome, but it just wasn’t to be.

“The group that we’ve got here is very good and extremely positive. We will always back each other up and we know that we are always going to create chances. Saturday was one of those days where we conceded goals at bad times.

“We approach every game looking for the three points; we have proved what we are capable of and know that on our day we have no-one to fear in this League.

“Already the focus has turned to the next game and ensuring that we can respond in the right way.”
