A hard fought point

Probably the most physical match I've seen so far this season, IMO a very hard fought point. A clean sheet, keeps the unbeaten run at home going, a 9 point cushion from the drop and 5 points from our last 3 matches, not bad. Yesterday just reminded me of a typical league two match up, wet conditions, long balls and a bloody physical style of play.

I thought the boys battled hard yesterday, we had our moments, two half chances in the first half from shots and some good set up play going forward, in all honesty, I thought it was just 2 brilliant showings from both defences. Danny Newton worked extremely hard, won quite a few headers and won his battles in there, the midfield battled and I thought the backline especially in the second half was superb. An aireal assault at times and I thought we dealt with it really well, every cross in the box was met by one if our boys. Sometimes we can't always win and I actually look at yesterday as a point gained considering the type of match it was. 35 points, realistically I'd say another 5 wins definitely gets us over the dotted line and to safety for another season. I understand everyone wanted a win, but at times we have to settle for a point, yesterday was one of those days. Thoughts?

Bring on Chesterfield next week!
