WE CAN PLAY BETTER - STILL

27 November 2013

Boss on Southport triumph

They might have racked up a sixth successive home win and extended their unbeaten run in the league to 13 games but John Still believes his side could have played better last night.

A stunning volley from Steve McNulty got the Town on their way against Southport at Kenilworth Road before further fine efforts from Jonathan Smith and Andre Gray completed the scoring.

The Hatters also hit the woodwork twice against the struggling Sandgrounders and, ominously, the boss thinks there’s more to come.

“I don’t think we played great first half and we took our time to get going in the second,” admitted Still afterwards.

“Once we got in the groove we looked like we’d score with every attack. We’ve won two home games, got six points and scored five goals so I’m pleased, but I think we can play better, there’s no doubt about that.

“We’re not going to play well every week, but you have to try and win every week. We’ve got that winning mentality, though, and that’s vital.

“Paul Benson’s hit the post, Luke Guttridge’s hit the bar. On another day and everything goes in your favour and you score five or six…but I’m not disappointed with three.”

The victory enabled the Town to leapfrog Kidderminster into second place in the table and close the gap on leaders Cambridge to four points.

The Hatters have played a game more than their promotion rivals – but Still isn’t too concerned about that.

“You can only control the controllables,” he said.” We can’t control what other teams do, we can only control what we do and what we’re doing at the moment is very good.”
