Manager Paul Cox was left pleased by the desire and application that his team showed in our 1-1 draw with bottom-of-the-table Nuneaton Town last night.
Nick Wright’s equaliser on the hour mark cancelled out Connor Taylor’s opener for the hosts, though we could have won the game had it not been for some misfortune infront of goal.
Both Lindon Meikle and Junior Daniel crashed efforts against the woodwork, whilst John Dempster saw a close range header saved by Nuneaton shot-stopper Ben McNamara in stoppage time.
But Cox was left pleased by what he saw from his players.
He said: “I think the most important thing was our level of performance. As a manager, I look for the desire and application and I couldn’t question it at all.”
“When we went a goal down, our level of performance rose, so there were a lot of positives to take from the game and even the neutral would have said we deserved the three points.”
The result brought an end to a retched recent run of form on the road, which had seen us lose both of our previous league games away from One Call Stadium prior to last night.
Cox continued: “Everything at the moment is either hitting the woodwork or the keeper is pulling off a world class save. But I’m still pleased with how hard the lads worked.”
“Some of our play was excellent. The football leading up to when Lindon Meikle hit the bar was on another level and we played some very good stuff throughout.”
Our boss added: “We have a great foundation to build on and that’s what we’re looking to do now.”
