Grayson: A Draw A Fair Result

Manager Happy With Second Half Showing Against Wycombe

23 October 2019

Simon Grayson was pleased with the response of his players in the second half following the 1-1 draw with Wycombe Wanderers.

Ben Heneghan’s header five minutes after the restart cancelled out the visitors early goal on Tuesday evening, and Grayson believes it was ultimately a well-deserved share of the spoils.

“We were on the back foot for a while in the first half,” he admitted.

“We were a bit too slow in possession at times, and didn’t have much tempo to our game.

“We tweaked a few things at half time and made sure the players really got on the front foot and we looked a different team in that second 45 minutes.”

Reflecting on Ben Heneghan’s equaliser in the second half, the manager was pleased the team utilised the strengths they have to find the goal.

“You’ve got to use the qualities you have within your squad,” he explained.

“Ben is a big and powerful lad, and can do a lot of damage in the penalty area from a set-piece, so we’re pleased for him he got his goal.

“It’s also good news to get the likes of Sullay Kaikai, Nathan Delfouneso and Jordan Thompson valuable game time, as this will put us in good stead going forward.”
