There were spells of excellence there - Warne

“I’m really pleased. It was a good away performance against a really good team. There were flashes of excellence and that was down to the lads’ dedication."

"The out of possession stuff was was absolutely frightening. The team had the game-plan on lockdown. It is one thing saying it in the classroom and another doing it on the pitch."

“We were not faultless, and there are still things to improve upon, but it was very close. We demand a lot out of the group and they delivered. There were some really good performances out there, today.

“Dan (Barlaser) is a good kid. He is a bit of a quarterback for us. He enables the other two midfielders to push on. He enables us to switch the play really quick. We like to play with width. It was a really good performance from him and he was chaperoned by two energetic performances from Wilsey and Ollie (Rathbone).


"I want our play to be athletic and the players have got to want to get crosses in the box and be a goal threat," Warne said. "I thought we had all of that.

"The lads have to have discipline out of possession and they had that as well. From a manager’s point of view, it can’t get much better.

"I thoroughly enjoy watching my team and spending time with them. I can allow myself to smile for 10 minutes. It was really enjoyable and that is how I want football to be played.

"I thought our performance was as good as it gets. I'd like to thank our fans who came. They were really good and stayed behind the team."

“I got booked in the first half for the first time. I’m disappointed I got booked. My mum will definitely text me with her disappointed face and I’ll have to build bridges with my family for the rest of the week.”  

"Obviously I lost all control because I threw a bottle down. The ref said to me afterwards he has never seen me like that and that I should be disappointed in myself for getting booked. I said to back to him that I am disappointed he didn't see a back-pass." Warne added.
