Gaffer Delighted With Win

1 September 2012

TOWN join boss Paul Hurst was delighted after seeing his side record their second consecutive win at Hereford this afternoon.

He said: “We came down here yesterday and prepared correctly. We looked to build on the Mansfield game and that was basically the team talk before the game.

“Apart from an exceptional save near the end from James McKeown, I don’t think they’ve cause us too much danger today.

“I think it’s a warm day and both teams found it hard going out there. 

“I thought we kept a nice shape when we didn’t have the ball. The weather did play a part but I thought we had a bit more cutting edge to us. When we did go forward I thought we went forward with a bit more pace.”

And Paul was pleased with Dayle Southwell’s impact after coming on as a first half substitute.   

Paul said: “We gave Dayle his chance today and he’s took it with both hands. He’s scored a really good goal - good finish, and he’s also held the ball up very well. He’ll go home very happy with his performance today.

“We are looking to build on today. Everything is not suddenly perfect. Barrow will be a difficult game, they haven’t had the greatest of starts. But we know that traditionally it is an extremely difficult place to go to.” 

Paul confirmed that Greg Pearson was withdrawn because of a groin strain.
