Brown pleased with unbeaten start

18 August 2013

Brown delighted as Blues make best start for 23 years

Manager Phil Brown says he is delighted with Blues’ excellent start to the league season, their best since 1990, but says there’s a long road ahead as they look to win promotion to League 1.

The 2-0 win over Northampton Town means Blues have won their opening three league games without conceding a goal in the process.

Brown says that’s down to the hard work and commitment of everyone in the squad.

He said: “Daniel Bentley’s penalty save was the turning point in the game. It seemed to lift the defenders and the attackers and that helped us to start playing our football.

“The penalty save just highlights what we’re trying to achieve and what we’re trying to do. Three clean sheets to start the season is terrific, it’s a really pleasing aspect as a manager.

“I think there’s only one other team in the whole of the Football League who haven’t conceded yet so it just shows how well we’re doing.

“There’s a long way to go though. I’m delighted we’ve made our best start since 1990, but we’re going to have to take that momentum we’ve built up forward with us now.

“We’re a small squad and we’re going to be tested over the coming months, but everyone in the team has clicked on to the ideas we’re trying to get across.

“That means we’re all getting the rewards. We want to try and play good football and pick up results and at the moment that’s what we’re doing.

“The signs so far have been excellent but we all know there’s a long way to go and all we can do is think about our next game and try and win that one.”
