Pidgeley praises team-mates after important victory

17 February 2015

On loan shot-stopper delighted after win over high-flying Luton Town.

 Goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley was full of praise for his team-mates after their hard fought 1-0 win against Luton Town in tonight’s Sky Bet League Two match at One Call Stadium.

Pidgeley remained solid as the last line of defence for our team, who took all three points thanks to Rakish Bingham’s calm finish in the first half.

When asked about the importance of the win, Pidgeley said: “Luton are doing fantastically this season and to bounce back after the late disappointment on Saturday, it’s a massive three points. I think we deserved it in the end. Sometimes you have to ‘win ugly’ and we saw the game out.

“So fair play to the lads. They really dug in and concentration and organisation got us over the line. 

“We were so disappointed (on Saturday against Northampton) and the best thing to do was to get out there and put it right. A 1-0 win and we looked very solid.”

Speaking about his personal form in goal, the ‘keeper said: “I’ve come in and steadied the ship. We haven’t conceded too many goals and it is really only a matter about points. The main thing is that the team is winning.

As our team now look to continue to break away from the bottom two, Pidgeley believes we need to keep pushing on: “That was our game in hand tonight and we really needed that one. If we didn’t win, Saturday would have hurt even more. We really needed to get the three points and we just need to build on it now. This will count for nothing if we don’t make account of ourselves this Saturday (against Oxford).

“We have some important games coming up. We will take it one game at a time and we’re all focussed on the next game.

“I said to the boys, once we start picking up results it will come. The team spirit was massive and I could see that from the first day. Everyone wants to do it for each other. Past results are history now.”
