Rowey’s goal was a goal good enough to win any game really.  Obviously early on I thought we started the game really positively in the first 15 minutes and we deserved to be in front in all honesty.  There was a chance there we could have been further ahead but credit to them they sort of found their feet a little bit and with the way they played with the spare man in midfield, had quite a bit of possession.

But we were comfortable, they played around in front of us really and I don’t really remember them having any chances where we felt threatened.  The second goal right on half time is a left hook for them but for us it was massive and effectively sealed the game.

The second goal came from a decent move and we knew that with them playing a diamond our full backs would be the way home and when we were having our spell when they had ball we didn’t get into them areas enough.  But Adam’s got the ball, driven down the left, needed a bit of interplay with Richie and finds himself at the by-line, the ball gets passed across and Lloydy sticks it in on the line.

I think it’s good to see people in there because maybe two or three weeks ago we’d have been looking at full backs there whereas if you get yourself in the six yard box the majority of goals are scored between the six yard line.

It came at a great time for us right before half time and sealed the game in the sense that we we’re not having to over extend ourselves in the second half.

We spoke at half time that they might have a little bit of possession with having the spare man in there but I said we’d have opportunities on the break but I don’t think we picked the right option enough times in the second half otherwise we could have won more convincingly.

But, like I say, credit to them, they kept going.  It’s always a difficult one for us when you think you’re 2-0 up and you have to keep pushing to get further goals.  We weren’t threatened at the other end and we’ve seen out the game quite comfortably.

Caspar’s hamstring tightened up late on so we’ll have to see how he is.  Fingers crossed he’s ok.  We’ve obviously got till Friday and we’ll train Monday and Tuesday and have a look at him there.  Hopefully it’s not too bad and he’s available on Boxing Day against Barrow.

We’re on a good run now and we knew that these three games after the Stockport draws were important.  We said to them in the dressing room that results are becoming more important than performances but in fairness in the three games we’ve had both.

So it’s very pleasing and we go into the next few games knowing it’s important, not just because of who we’re playing, but it’s the time of year where we play a lot of football in a short space of time.  We’re going into it in good form, we’re looking forward to it, and hopefully we can keep producing the performances we have been doing.
