Manager pleased with point

Town boss John Still believes his side’s display in the goalless draw at Forest Green was the best of the season so far.


The Town had a number of chances to win all three points on an afternoon where goalkeeper Mark Tyler barely had a save to make.

And the manager was pleased at winning a point at the home of one of the favourites for promotion.

“That was our best performance so far,” said Still afterwards. “I thought our organisation was first class. To be the away team and for Mark to make only one save shows how much we restricted them.

“I thought we were strong, solid and determined and there were a lot of good individual performances.

“All we needed was a bit more quality in the final third, but I think our game is coming together.

“The application and work-rate was good and there were passages of play in both halves where we played some good touch-pass football which delighted me. That’s something we’ll keep working on.

“The last time they played at home they scored eight so that put this result into context. It was a good level of performance which is drastically improved from the first three games.

“Am I happy with a point? Yes. Would I have taken a point before? Yes, but I always want us to win.”
