Alan Dunne was voted Man of the Match following the scoreless draw against Charlton this weekend and he admitted that it would’ve been heartbreaking had they managed to sneak the game right at the death.

Speaking to the official site following his goal line clearance at the death of the game after Byron Webster had slipped, our skipper admitted he felt like celebrating it like he’d just scored.

‘I was going to run off and celebrate like scoring but there was still a bit of time left so I couldn’t. For me to make a clearance like that is like scoring a goal. Initially I thought their lad was offside, but watching it back he wasn’t. It would have been tough to take if they had scored that.’

Dunne goes on to say that with how our season has gone so far this campaign, he’s actually surprised it didn’t go in, so maybe that is the break, the turning point for a bit of lady luck now.

‘Apart from that shot late on, I thought we were comfortable defensively throughout the game and we were solid. It was a typical derby game and one that some of the lads here hadn’t played in. We had chances but perhaps we didn’t create enough, although it did open up a bit in the second half.’

Echoing Ian Holloway’s words, Dunne also said he thought that a draw was the fair result for both teams and he went on to credit the atmosphere and both sets of fans for making it a great occasion once more.

‘But we’ll take a clean sheet and move on from here.’
