Manager Lee Johnson has said that whilst a point away from home at London Road shouldn’t be sniffed at, he did end the game with some disappointment as he feels we should’ve come away with the extra two points.

Speaking to the Official Site Johnson explained.

‘It was a good point, I don’t think we were at our best and we looked leggy in my opinion. It was important that we came here and retained the unbeaten run and I’m pleased with that. I was disappointed we didn’t win because I wanted us to be more in touch with the play offs but we have got to keep plugging away. Partnerships are still being built in the squad and it will only get better.’

Johnson goes on to say that it was a difficult game for both sides, especially with the way it ebbed and flowed, and despite scoring twice ourselves, he does feel we had three or four excellent spells in the game that we probably should’ve done more with.

‘We came out with a point but it could have gone either way, but it’s a good sign because even when we aren’t at our best, we are picking up points. Sometimes last year we was at our best but losing so this is a good trait to have.’

Crediting the fans for their support again, the manager also confirmed that Joe Mills missed the game with a bug, but he expected him to be back in contention for Tuesday evening.

As for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy clash against Barnsley, Johnson said it was a competition he was taking seriously because having played at Wembley himself, he’d like nothing more than to lead the lads out at the national stadium as a manager.

“Last year we were unlucky losing on penalties in a game we should have won but hopefully this time we can go further.
