Town chief reacts after goalless draw at Highbury
Head coach Uwe Rosler says he was impressed with the play by his team, but admits they didn’t do enough to win the game as Town were held to a goalless draw by AFC Wimbledon.
Ashley Hunter had arguably the best chance of the game in the first half, as well as his side keeping their fifth clean sheet in six games.
“We’ve got another clean sheet, but we didn’t do well enough during some of the game to win it,” said Rosler.
“We had some good counter attacking opportunities but we didn’t pick the passes.
“We didn’t create enough clear-cut chances, but it’s another point towards our target so I can’t complain.”
The best chance of the game came in the first half through Ash Hunter, but Rosler admits he isn’t too disappointed with the striker’s performance.
“He was pretty much one-on-one with the goalkeeper who made a great save.
“I don’t have any criticism of Ash because you can’t score every time, and I know he can score goals. I’ve no doubt he’ll score again soon.”
Wimbledon’s tactics frustrated the Cod Army, and the German feels injuries played their part in those frustrations.
“Wimbledon’s 3-5-2 formation really limited us in what we can do because of injuries in certain positions.
“Over time it will hard to keep up this way so what we have to do is keep morale and fitness high and hope that players will return sooner than later.
“Cian Bolger normally wouldn’t have played under normal circumstances today because of his chest infection, but credit to the player because he was superb today in helping us get the clean sheet.”
Rosler was delighted with Cameron Brannagan, who came on in the place of Kyle Dempsey.
“It’s a massive ask for Kyle to play every minute, and Cameron brings energy to the squad and he definitely has a goal in him. I have to be careful to make sure I’m not working them too hard.”
Most importantly for Rosler though, the game marks another point for his personal target.
“We have to take what we get and being third in the league, everyone should be happy with where we are right now. We have a big week ahead of us.”
