Manager Colin Cooper has said he was satisfied following our three nil defeat over Newport County yesterday.
Goals from the James, and Williams with an own goal sandwiched in the middle was enough to give us a return of all three points on the day, and the victory lifted us into eighth place in the league and whilst there is still a reasonable gap between us and the play off places, the gap with the number of games left certainly isn't insurmountable if we can get ourselves on a good winning run - and of course back to back victories is a good way of starting that.
Speaking to the Official Site after the full time whistle had been blown, Cooper said.
'Like last weekend, I thought we rode our luck a little bit before we got in front. What Newport do is put you under pressure from all areas of the pitch and make you defend, we switched off from the very first corner in the very first minute when Scott Flinders had to make a save - that sort of thing can cost you.'
Despite the early jitters, Cooper was pleased with our opening goal though as he feels it was a nice bit of play, and a 'wonderful' cross and the return and then finish were 'exceptional' for him. The second goal was obviously a pleasing cushion for us on the day, and even though Newport were penning us back, he felt we looked dangerous on the counter attack and likely to score every time we went forward, so when the third goal did come.
'It's lovely to watch, seeing someone have the confidence to nut-meg someone, link up with a team mate and smash it in to the goal is brilliant.'
Cooper says it was even better when you factor in that Luke Williams 'had an egg on his eye from getting a whack in the first half.'
I'm not sure an egg would help.
So it's on to Tuesday's match now, six points behind Southend and a chance to reduce that to only a three point gap will be the aim.
