John Coleman was obviously pleased with a winning return to the stadium having retaken charge of the club, but he admits it’s back to the drawing board in training this week because he knows we aren’t going to win many games we allow a team to put us under the kind of pressure that Plymouth did.

Speaking to Sky Sports following the one nil win courtesy of a goal from Kal Naismith, the gaffer admitted that we did ride our luck in the game and he thinks the game showed us we have plenty of lessons still to learn.

‘We won’t get away with being put under that amount of pressure every week. We have got to defend from the front and we need to address that in training this week and we have got to get things right. We are going in the right direction but this league is tight and we said at half time that three points in this league is like gold dust and you have to fight for everyone.’

Coleman goes on to say that he has to credit the players for their efforts in the last game because he thought they were ‘outstanding’ but in that game the attackers really let the defence out of jail with how we defending in the game, conceding four games, but against Plymouth in many ways the defenders have done the attackers a favour and ‘spared their blushes’ because we just weren’t at the races in his mind and certainly didn’t reach the ‘standards’ he knows we can.

Reaching those standards and having a more rounded game will be his focus in the time we have prior to the match against Mansfield.
