'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Johnson Delighted With Seven Point Gap

Following on from our one nil victory over Carlisle yesterday, manager Lee Johnson has said he's delighted to see us open up a seven point gap and secure our position in the league for next season.

James Dayton's 70th minute strike was enough to give us a return of another three points, and the manager speaking to the press following the game said.

'It's been a tough year with many hurdles to get over. The fans turned out in their numbers all dressed up and never stopped singing and I'm pleased for the lads, the fans, the chairman and myself.'

As for Carlisle, he knew it would be a tough game and it proved to be just that, but in his words football is ultimately 'kill or be killed' and with us being favoured for relegation and looking at periods like we were really going to get sucked into the battle at the bottom, he's absolutely delighted to have seen our recent form prove to be enough to open up a nice gap now as it gives us something to build on for next season.

'I hope next year will be a lot smoother. It's difficult to get a goal against us at the moment, the players we have signed have improved us and there are a lot of positives going forward. We've kept five clean sheets out of the last seven games and the boys at the back are well drilled and put their heads and their bodies on the line. I'm pleased with the way we played football.'

Hopefully now Johnson will be able to kick on with the team next term, and he'll have learnt a lot this season from the experience and the errors he admits he has made at points, hopefully he can rectify over the summer and whilst a play off run is probably too much to ask for at this stage, a more solid mid table or top half finish should be the aim.
