POST-MATCH | I think our work-rate won us that one - Warne

22 January 2022

Paul Warne praised a battling performance following the win over Cheltenham Town...

"It was hard-fought. I don’t want our fans turning up thinking ‘here we go, we’re going to win 5-0 today.’ Every game is an absolute battle.

"I think the pitch has gone a bit. It’s winter football and the lads are sliding about all over the place. We don’t seem as concise as normal. But, we’ve managed to win a football game and I don’t think anyone will have left not thinking we were the better side.

"With all the possession we had first-half, we didn’t create enough cutting edges. We took an extra touch before crossing it.

"Smudge has done really good for the goal. At 1-0, it’s always a problem.

"It's a hard-fought win and it will count as much as a 4-1 will at the end of the season. In that respect, I'm pleased.

"In fairness, I thought Woody was the outstanding player. He sums up what we're trying to do here, pressing the goalkeeper at the end. He's a massive driving force and all the players look up to him.

"The work-rate of the lads is phenomenal and that's why we all get on as a group and why we have won the game today."
