Manager Ian Holloway has said he felt that our scoreless draw with Charlton at the weekend was the right result.

It was a pretty finely balanced game, albeit with a lack of clear cut chances for either side although Holloway conceded Charlton would’ve been disappointed to not have snuck the win near the end of the game, but given the performance and the effort he thought we put in, he felt we were more than worthy of a share of the spoils.

Speaking to the official site following the game, the gaffer was pleased with the clean sheet and felt it was deserved owing to our characteristic solid defensive work.

‘I’m pleased with the performance that the lads gave me. It was as professional as we’ve been over the last few weeks. We stuck to our task, didn’t lose concentration and didn’t make a mistake right up until the last minute where Webster slipped, but Dunney got him out of jail. The game itself was excellent and that is what football is about for me. I’m proud of the way we went about our business.’

Holloway went on to say that he believed the stats from the game would make for pleasing reading and he was also happy with how we knocked the ball around and tried to stretch them when in possession.

‘There was a lot that we talk about which we managed to implement, which as an away side is really difficult to do at times.’

Admitting that he didn’t feel either side had really done enough to take the win, he went on to credit our backline for how we coped with their threats and he said that in the dressing room after the game he had told the players to ‘start believing’ in themselves more, because he knows that type of professional solid performance – if we click up front – will see us climb the table quite quickly if we can sustain it.
