Manager Paul Cox has said he views the point we took from the game against Cambridge as an excellent one given the injury problems we had ahead of the game.

Speaking to the Official Site following the scoreless draw, our manager explained that he was just happy to be able to get eleven players out there given the week the club had in training.

‘It was just good to get an 11 out there. With what has happened during the week, it made it a tricky weekend to come into, but I thought the boys were tremendous.’

Cox goes on to say that two players on the pitch had to have painkilling injections ahead of the game just so they could play a part, and it has been a hellishly tough week on the team so he has got nothing but praise and credit for their efforts in the game.

‘They’ve gone out there, been professional and showed a great desire to work hard. Coming into a game against a side who have absolutely bulldozed teams of late, I thought we were tremendous. I thought our first half performance was excellent, and there were some tired bodies out there. We really are down to the bare bones.’

With Fergus Bell picking up a yellow card for simulation in the penalty box, Cox also said he thought it was a stonewall penalty and he’s seen them given regularly during the season so he has no idea why the referee decided to do something different this time around as it proved ultimately to be a match changing decision, but with the injuries that’s kind of our luck at the moment.

Moving back to the injuries, Luke Jones could be out for between four to six months now, and the manager admitted that when he went down and the obvious pain that he was in did affect his team mates and it ended the session there and then, so again for them to have put that effort in really delighted him with all that has gone on.
