Head coach Uwe Rosler says he satisfied with his side’s 2-0 home with over AFC Wimbledon at Highbury.

Two goals from Devante Cole and a battling defensive display saw Rosler’s side make it three wins from three in Sky Bet League One on Saturday.

The German gave his reaction to the win post-match, and said that it was far from as convincing as the score line suggests.

“When you look at the papers tomorrow and read the result you may think it was a comfortable win, but it was nowhere near comfortable,” said Rosler.

“Of course we are happy, we are satisfied with the three points and the clean sheet, but the second half was below par for us.

“In the first half we did ok given the wind. In the second half as soon as Devante scored the second goal we only played the result, and nobody really wanted the ball and we wanted to defend.

“We invited pressure and we invited them to cause us problems and that’s what they did. We rode our luck, so fair play to them.”

Town’s boss was quick to praise the impact of Cole, whose two strikes saw his tally for the season up to three goals for the campaign.

“Devante was our match winner today, he got us out of jail,” added Rosler.

“The wind didn’t change in the second half, but our thinking did, especially after Devante scored that fantastic second goal.

“Devante scored two great individual goals which got us out of jail. I would have liked to be have been attacking after going two goals up, but we have no intention to play the football to cause them problems and then we invited pressure. We were defending for our lives.”
