After the disappointment of the postponement of Saturday’s game at Salford, it was good for the lads to get out on the pitch on Monday night against Gainsborough. We put in a very professional performance to run out comfortable winners and once we were in front, the players played with a lot of freedom and were able to express themselves and produce some lovely football. A special mention must go to everyone who has worked on the pitch over the last few weeks during the bad weather. The surface allowed us to move the ball quickly and played a massive part in the victory.
I was pleased that three of our recent signing were able to make their home debuts in the game. Dan Pybus has signed on loan from Bradford City and he provided energy and quality for us. He’s someone I’ve seen play on several occasions in their Under 23 side and as he gets more used to the physical side of the football at our level, I’m sure he’ll improve further and be a real asset during his loan spell. Frank Mulhern has signed on loan until the end of the season and I felt both he and Adam Smith showed glimpses of what they are about when they came off the bench. None of these signings would have been possible without the help of the Players Fund Initiative and they will be vital in adding strength in depth to the squad, but also increasing competition for places in the starting eleven.
More good performances to come
