Caretaker boss Jon Brady had mixed feelings as he reflected on Tuesday night’s goalless draw with Rochdale.
“I’m frustrated we haven’t picked up the three points but we managed the game well at the end to make sure we got at least one,” he said.
“It was a difficult night for both teams with the howling wind but we had six shots on target and two one-on-ones.
“Ryan Edmondson led the line really well, we are working hard with him in training and the key for him is repetition and belief. The effort is there and when he gets one goal I’m confident he will get more.
“No matter what happened tonight the plan with our medical staff was for Mickel Miller to get 45 minutes, there was a huge risk if he played more than that his hamstring might go and we had to do what was right for the benefit of Mickel and for us long-term. Sam Hoskins hit the ground running when he came on and he showed a great attitude.
“It’s very tight in the league and we are fighting. I believe we’ve made a positive change in our style of play and in the chances we are creating. It was tough tonight with the conditions but I believe with the players we’ve got we can stay in this league.”
