Crainey: We must take the positives from the game

4 January 2015

Left back has returned to the side in recent games after injury

Stephen Crainey said is side must take the positives from their 2-2 draw against Swindon Town at Highbury on Saturday afternoon.

The Cod Army had gone two goals to the good in the second half, but were pegged back by the Robins who earned a draw thanks to Louis Thompson.

Crainey has returned to the starting eleven in recent games after injury, and is looking to cement his place back in the side during the second half of the campaign.

He said: “They’re a top side. We’ve played them twice now over the past few weeks and they pass the ball really well and move really well.

“After being 2-0 up though it’s really disappointing to not get the three points, but we’ll try to take the positives out of the game.

“At half time, the manager told us to get a little bit closer and to get in their faces, and to be fair I thought we did that in the second half.

“We’ve had good results against some good sides so far, which just shows that we can compete with the top teams in this division.”

Crainey praised the spirit amongst the camp though, and is hoping that Town can push on during the next few months.

“We’ve got a great group of lads in that dressing room; not just the starting 11 but the whole squad. There’s good competition at the moment which bodes well.

“The lads all graft for each other and work really hard, and if you’re working hard on the training ground then results are going to come your way.

“Every game is tough in this division and we know that, but on the day we’re capable of getting three points against any side, no matter who we’re playing.”
