Frankie Bunn has taken a leaf out of Gareth Southgate's book by stating that he is pleased with the 'togetherness of his side' after holding Championship side Nottingham Forest to a 2-2 draw in Saturdays friendly at Boundary Park.
Bunn said, “It wasn’t bad. Again it’s another step to where we want to be, we’re not the finished article yet but we are working and striving to get there and I think there were little glimpses of that, certainly in the second half where it was just starting to come together. We were a bit fearful in the first half, not really committing to what we wanted to do but we spoke at half time and to be fair to the boys they dug in, they showed a bit of grit and determination and got themselves back in the game.”
“He [Dan Gardner] was just feeling his groin. Hopefully it’s not too serious but again we’ve lost Rob Hunt and Cameron Dummigan so we’re sort of bare bones and we were tired towards the end, then they go and bring on about eight players so that confounded the issue but like I said it’s another step in the right direction.”
“You can see that there’s a bit of spirit there. For both goals we scored everyone was there which was nice to see and you can just see that spirit and togetherness just forming now. We’re learning about this side everyday in training and everyday in and around the ground socially with them. I think things are improving, we have seen a difference and we’ve just got to keep that momentum going now.”
“For Andy and myself, with our love of the club, it means a lot to us. We want to succeed and we want the players to succeed but we need the help from the supporters and I just hope that they’re a little bit patient with us and they come back to us.”
