With three players making their debuts for the club in the two one victory over Accrington Stanley, manager Graham Westley hailed them all for the impact they made in the game.

Speaking to the press following the game that saw David McAllister make his full debut and last the 90 minutes, with Jack Jebb and Charlie Adams both coming on for their debuts in the second half, the manager couldn’t have been more pleased with their efforts.

‘They are lads who I know well. David is a terrific footballer. I saw a lot of him at Sheffield United and when I knew of his availability I jumped at the chance to bring him.’

Westley goes on to say that he’s a great athlete and a great competitor and despite a lack of game minutes following an injury last season, for him, he felt he was the clear man of the match in the game.

‘Charlie is a terrific little talent, bright and buzzing, inventive and creative. Some really good patterns emerged round him and Jack showed his passing ability in the middle of the park.’

Westley goes on to say that Jack is of a similar ilk to Luke Freeman and given his upbringing there is always that pedigree and technical ability so he’s delighted to have been able to bring him in.

As for the game itself, Westley says the team showed it’s ‘grit and determination’ and he was delighted with how solid the defence were over the 90 minutes and whilst he admits we allowed too many set pieces to come into the box in the game, he couldn’t have been happier with how we limited their chances around the box.

‘On the whole the job was to get three points and to stop that run of two successive defeats. We talked about that and when things have not gone our way, the response has not been fantastic and we have let it get to us and have forgotten our own game. We stayed in the game at 1-1.’
