Manager Teddy Sheringham and midfielder Dean Parrett have both given their thoughts following Saturday’s two one win over Plymouth Argyle.

Speaking to the Official Site firstly our former England man was delighted with some of the passages of play that the team put together over the course of 90 minutes, and he feels that things are slowing falling into place for us now with the team gelling and getting more used to what he wants from them – especially as he made a number of changes to the starting eleven on the day.

‘With the players than you have missing, you juggle things around and other people come in and get their chance. I am sure there will be times when I really have a go about missing out on players but I have got a decent sized squad now. I am pleased with what I have got, what I can juggle around and I am glad for the lads that came in and did a job today.’

Having gone two nil up ahead of the break, the first half took most of the manager’s delight and he knew the early goal had settled us well in the game.

‘It helps when you score an early goal, it gives you a little lift and everyone calms down a little bit. We played some real good stuff which I was pleased with. It is coming together, we still have a long way to go but there was improvement today so as manager I am pleased with that.’

With the second half, and Plymouth coming more into it, being more about defensive organisation that was also a pleasure for him in terms of things starting to come together for the club as he always knew the opposition would come back, so it was about how we handled that and whether heads dropped.

‘I said at half-time, this was a decent outfit and they would come at us from all angles – and they did. I have got every respect for Plymouth and the way they went about trying to get back into the game and kept coming at us until the last minute. I really enjoyed it, it was a great game out there and it is even better when you come out with three points.’

As for Parrett, in his interview he was clear that it was the attitude of his colleagues on the day that got us through.

‘The first 30 minutes we were brilliant I thought; the way we pressed, our intensity, the way we held the ball up, the way we turned them round when we needed to, the way we made space for the midfielders to play. We got the goal early from our endeavour – strong tackles and Connor overlapping from left-back, that is what you want to see. We have been working really hard on the training ground for the past few weeks and I think it is starting to show on the pitch now.’

He went on to say that the ‘desire’ from the side to take all three points was ‘brilliant’ and even at two one he didn’t feel we looked like we would concede again.

‘Everyone had faith in each other to work hard, not leave any gaps and I don`t think they had many chances after. We worked really hard today and I think we got the reward. We had to fight hard for the points and we are buzzing. You could see that the boys wanted to win today, no-one left anything out there today.’
