Ardley Delighted With Attacking Display

Ardley Delighted With Attacking Display

Manager Neal Ardley has said he was delighted with the attacking threat we showed in the League Two opener against Shrewsbury Town yesterday.

A two all draw and a decent showing gave plenty of positives on the opening day, and speaking to the Official Site following the game, even the fact we fought back from behind was a positive for the gaffer as he looks for real improvement this season.

'We went one nil down, but we always had a goal threat, which was something we talked about after last season. It was a great ball in and great movement from Matt Tubbs for our first goal. I thought after the first 20 minutes we were the better team until the last 10-15 minutes. We were the team most likely to score and the save their goalkeeper made to deny Sean Rigg was phenomenal.'

Seeing us keep pushing and battling away was particularly pleasing for the gaffer and he couldn't have been more delighted when we finally got ourselves in front, but he had to concede their leveller was a typical League Two goal and it was a mistake from us as we got caught ball watching and somebody snuck in around the back, so despite the positives clearly improvement is still needed, but not a bad way to open the campaign.

'I'm learning all the time and I know I'm not the finished article by any stretch of the imagination. I am trying to come up with a formula that can win us games consistently.'
