“I said this earlier that the worst is was going to be a draw and I think the boys really worked it out.
"You know when you are playing an away game it's quite different and even judging the performance of your players is very difficult because is not easy picking a point or points from somebody's home. I can say that my boys have done very well.
"As you can see, we have a lot of young players which most of them have not tested premier before alongside Saddick Adams who is matured among them so you could see we still have a lot of work to do with these boys.
