David Wright was full of praise for the way his team-mates ground out a goalless draw in windswept conditions at Swindon Town last Friday evening.
Wright played a key role, protecting his back four with an impressive display as a defensive midfielder to secure a 0-0 draw and a precious point.
The game had only gone ahead following two pitch inspections.
“It was very difficult to get the ball down, especially in the second half,” revealed Wright.
“But all credit to our boys, I thought they were excellent.

“Goodness knows how many times it was off and on!
“So it was difficult to mentally switch ourselves on.
“But all credit to the boys, they did that and were very professional.
“The pitch was actually all right, it stood up better than I thought it was going to do.
“You can play in snow and rain, but once it starts blowing gales it’s extremely difficult,” added Wright.
