Moore: There wasn't much between the teams

1 November 2020

Darren Moore thought that his side’s 1-0 win against Lincoln City was an excellent advert for football in Sky Bet League One.

A tight game was decided a moment of brilliance from captain Ben Whiteman who buried the ball in the right corner of Lincoln’s goal.  

Moore said: “We knew it was going to be tight game today. I don’t think there was anything between both teams today. It was an excellent advert for League One football. Both teams played their part in what was a good game. 

“It was a great goal to win the game and came from a great move. It was always going to be something special to win the game because Lincoln possess a really strong defensive record. So we knew we had to be really good going forward. 

“In terms of football played at this level I am really pleased with the work that we did off the ball but certainly the work on the ball was good. We asked Lincoln plenty of questions and that has helped us get a valuable set of three points in a really tight game today.” 

After shaking up his back line ahead of the visit of the Imps, Darren Moore was full of praise for his side’s defensive work which earnt them their second clean sheet of the season.    

He added: “We defended as a team. It was a collective effort and when I think of the work ethic of the attacking players to track back and defend, it shows it was a real team effort.  

“Tactically I knew it would be a tight game and I knew the balance of the team had to be right. Joe can play at right back and he gave us an out ball when we were in possession and he was defensively solid.  

“Danny has waited for this opportunity and thought with his quality at left back if we can get him free down the left-hand side that he’d cause problems. Cameron John is a natural left footer and the reshuffle came from Madger Gomes narrowly missing out. These things we work on in training and they aren’t just thrown on the players overnight.”
