Manager David Flitcroft has said he was content to leave with a point from the game against Wycombe Wanderers.

Both sides went into the match level in the play off places at this early stage of the season, and both sides had the woodwork to thank for keeping the score at nil nil come full time, but the gaffer was relatively happy with what he saw and he believes it’ll be a good point for us as the season goes on.

Speaking to the MEN following the game, Flitcroft explained.

‘Any point away from home is a point earned and I’m happy with that. Wycombe are one of the most hard working teams in the league, they had chances at the end and it was heart in the mouth stuff for us and whether or not it (Murphy’s header) went over the line, I’m not so sure. But Pablo Mills’ performance warranted a clean sheet.’

The gaffer goes on to say that in the first half especially we had some very good chances, but the second half was a lot more level and could’ve gone either way, so really on balance a draw with positives to take from it, was probably the fair result.

With the loan window now back upon us, the gaffer also told the press that he would be looking at what’s available to him in a defensive sense to provide some cover and more options for us given injuries and suspensions have hit at the moment and a few players are playing on with niggles and if he can give them a rest it might be beneficial in the long run.

If he does make the move it will only be probably one or maybe two because he does feel we have the numbers, we just need to see past this point to let people recover.

He also doesn’t rule out bringing back Joe Widdowson from his loan spell, because we have a 24 hour recall clause in his deal to Morecambe, but he’ll see what transpires.
