Brown: More of the same at Aldershot

Blues boss wants his side to approach Aldershot game in same manner as Saturday against Bristol Rovers

Phil Brown hopes his side can approach Tuesday night’s game against Aldershot Town with the same mentality and attitude that was applied on Saturday against Bristol Rovers at Roots Hall.

And the Blues boss believes that if his players do so, and can find that finishing touch in front of goal, they will pick up their first win since the 2-1 victory at Port Vale.

Brown said: “We showed the right mentality and attitude on Saturday and played very well, I was thrilled with what I saw. The only thing that was lacking was our finishing in front of their goal.

“When a manager visits Roots Hall I want them to leave with a bad experience and we didn’t quite see them off on Saturday. We needed to drum them into the ground and we couldn’t quite do that.

“When you look at the stats, I think we had 17 shots at goal. Seven of them were on target but the easiest chances we had weren’t, that was the only downside from the game for me.

“We came out with a clean sheet and we must look to build on that against Aldershot on Tuesday night, so I can’t see many changes being made defensively for the game.

“We’ve got some time to train and work on the creativity of the midfield three. They created chances for the front three and we’re just work a ltitle bit of their movement.

“With the quality of striker we have here at the moment we can really trouble any team. Britt’s pace, Barry Corr’s physical presence and then Freddy’s guile, which I thought was outstanding for a League 2 player on Saturday. I’m delighted to have Freddy back both physically and mentally because he’s now ready to play again on Tuesday night.

“People see 4-3-3 and think it’s negative but not for me. You could see on Saturday we played some good football and created chances. If we approach the game against Aldershot in the same manner and finish those chances, I’m sure we’ll see them off.”
