Manager Neil Harris has admitted he was frustrated to see us not take all three points from the weekend’s encounter with Oldham Athletic, but he also knew it wasn’t the end of the world.

Having had two great opportunities to take the win with the two penalties late on that Lee Gregory saw saved, it was a disappointing day but the Play Off hopes aren’t overly dented by the result as long as we get back to winning ways against Peterborough United on Tuesday evening.

Speaking to the official site in his post game press conference, Harris remained pretty balanced about things given how the game played out but of course he was left ruing the missed opportunities we had on the day.

‘It’s frustrating because we had great chances to win the game. It’s another point gained but we need to be making the most of our chances. It’s frustrating but it’s not the end of the world. We have got spirit and togetherness in this team, I think you could see that by the way the boys got around Lee Gregory after missing the second penalty.’

Having been unable to find the breakthrough despite our chances, their was pleasure for the gaffer in the defensive showing that saw us register another clean sheet this year.

‘We controlled the game well at times. Tom King had to make one save in virtually 95 minutes of football. We didn’t test their keeper too often but we had the better of the chances. It was a difficult afternoon on a heavy pitch. It was hard to use the ball, we went quite direct and I think we grew into the game. Second-half was much better and we got into some really good areas, created some chances and Fred Onyedinma had a shot cleared off the line.’

Harris ended by saying that he was hopeful that Jed Wallace and Steve Morison would return to contention for Tuesday’s match at The Den after they missed out in this one.

‘They will continue to be assessed and will be given every opportunity to prove fit, right up until Tuesday evening. The good news is we look to have come through today with a clean bill of health and we can start looking ahead to Tuesday.’
