Baxter praises new boss

Last updated : 18 January 2019 By The Chairman

Jose Baxter was quick to praise caretaker boss Pete Wild after the 0-0 draw at home to Forest Green Rovers.

Baxter said, “It was good to be back and get some minutes. I’m still some way off my head knowing what to do and my feet doing it for me but it’s good to be back. It’s the worst thing in the world being injured but when the lads are doing well it makes it easier, and seeing the fans with a buzz around them makes it a lot easier but it doesn’t take away the fact that it is horrible to be injured. [Wild] has been great, he’s taken to it like a duck to water. The lads have bought into what he wants to do. The lads have been really professional. Training has been really good and as you can see the performances from the lads have been really good. Not long ago we would have thrown that game away. If we can’t win games then we have to make sure we don’t lose them and that point might be vital. We still have the same aims as at the start of the season. We want promotion and to get into the play-offs that’s still our goal.”

“I should have doubled my tally with that chance at the end but as I said my brain couldn’t sort my feet out. You can’t show the top teams too much respect. We can’t take anyone lightly and we want to go and win at Macclesfield.”
