I know, it seems like a strange thing to get excited about, but a full three months into the season we’ve finally kept a clean sheet. Pity that a) it took three months, and b) we had to play Scunthorpe to get it.
Anyway, at least it is a step in the right direction. The counter-argument to that is that there’s just about a count in place regarding the number of games Warnock has been in charge without a win (now up to four games). Thankfully he sounds positive, stating “I will be looking to see what we can do in the loan market to strengthen us up front”.
At least for one day, the defenders get a break.
