“With no disrespect to the opposition today, if you make those little mistakes you get punished against better opposition.
“The most important thing is that we get off to a good start, a winning start. A big plus the clean sheet. I don’t care who the opposition is.

“I’m trying to bring players in. I’m speaking to players and I’m confident and positive that I’ll have a couple in by the time we play Aldershot.”
