Boss satisfied despite drawing blank
It’s only that cutting edge in attack that John Still believes the Town need to find after they secured another point and another clean sheet in a goalless draw at Cambridge.
“Defensively we’re comfortable now,” Still told Hatters Player afterwards. “I thought our attacking play started well but it’s in that final that it’s not as good as I’d like.
“But it’s been difficult, Jon Shaw’s been brilliant for us, but he’s been struggling with a hernia and his movement has been restricted. He’ll have an operation now, but I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring in Paul Benson because he will give us a focal point in attack.
“That’s the plan anyway, but we’ll keeping cracking away. We’ve picked up our performance levels once again.
“We’re competing now – all we need is to find that final edge to our play. I think we’ve started well, and while the last two games have been good tests, I actually think the Macclesfield game was the toughest we’ve had yet.
“They’re all tough games but what we’ve learned so far is that we can now take the game to the other team with pace and power and keep it solid at the back. It’s just that play in the final third we’ve got to work on now.”
