Goalkeeper Jason Mooney and debutant Adam Dugdale have given their response following our scoreless draw against Stevenage last weekend.

Goalkeeper Mooney helped us to our second consecutive clean sheet after replacing Owain fon Williams between the sticks as he was away on international duty.

Speaking to the Official Site he explained.

‘I’m buzzing with keeping a clean sheet. It’s what you want to do as a goalkeeper, I can’t do anything about us scoring, but I can just do my job. I had a couple of attempts that I had to go for, but the back four were brilliant.’

It’s also Mooney’s second clean sheet following performance against Bournemouth last season, when that game ended 0-0 also, and it’s a record he’s looking to build on even though he knows the pressure that will bring on him as he gets more games under his belt.

He also had praise for the staff at the club and fon Williams for all they are doing to help him improve and develop further as a goalkeeper and even though he’s been delighted with his two games so far, he knows he has a long way to go and a lot more to improve on.

Debutant Adam Dugdale was also pleased to have kept a clean sheet in the game as he played 90 minutes at centre back, although he feels it wouldn’t have been unfair had we walked out of the game with all three points.

‘I was a little bit disappointed that we didn’t get the three points because I thought we deserved to win it. We hit the post twice and had one or two shouts for penalties, we were unlucky but it’s something to build on.’

The on loan Crewe player is now looking forward to making more appearances for the club as he’s initially with us until at least the end of the month, but if he does well who knows if the deal will be extended, but if he can help us to a few more clean sheets along the way then everybody wins.
