Artell: "It's Important We Peform Like That"

10 September 2019

Boss Dave Artell is delighted his side are showing the defensive resilience that so often blighted potentially results away from home last season.

His side picked up their third away league win of the current campaign from just four games at Grimsby on Saturday, keeping a clean sheet against the league's top scorers.

That solidity in defence has allowed the attacking skill & guile to thrive & the two coupled together have led to the fine start to the season that has warranted five wins from the seven games.

Artell said: “It was a terrific away performance both in defence & attack.

“To a man they were terrific. We defended set pieces well, the long throws & the bombardment into the box.

“You can see why they’ve scored plenty of goals because they don’t mess around getting it forward & getting it in the box. But we defended properly & in the second half attacked with more purpose & got the goals our play deserved.

“It’s just a win, just another three points, but it’s important that we perform like that.”
