Brown: Another impressive performance

16 November 2013

Blues boss delighted with his side once against as they show determination to shut out Exeter City

Phil Brown says Blues showed plenty of determination and resilience to pick up their third win in a row with a 2-0 win against Exeter City.

Blues dug deep in the second-half to keep Exeter at bay following goals from Cauley Woodrow and Kevan Hurst in the first-half.

Brown was also delighted as Blues made it nine clean sheets so far this season – with a win every time they have kept the opposition out.

He said: “When we win, it’s great that we’re keeping a clean sheet because it shows everyone is coming to the party.

“Nothing is won in November but it’s fantastic that we’re finding some form as we come into a busy period.

“What is important is that we’re keeping clean sheets and we’re scoring goals at the other end, that’s eight without reply now.

“Three seems to be the lucky number for us at the moment. It’s three wins in a row and three clean sheets in a row for the third time this season.

“The confidence is through the roof, that might change at some point but it’s up to the coaching staff to keep that in good spirit.

“We’ve got a very tough week coming up but that’s three wins in a row now so we’ll head into the York game in good form.

“We want to make sure it’s more than three wins in a row this time. An unbeaten run would be fantastic to push us further up the table.”

Brown was also delighted to see Woodrow grab his first goal in the Football League.

He said: “Cauley scored a real striker’s goal but I don’t think he’ll remember much about scoring it to be honest.

“He stepped in on Thursday and Friday but only found out he was playing the morning of the game.

“He produced a solid display and really earned the shirt which is great news for competition for places.

“We knew he would be a different type of number nine to Barry Corr but he led the line well and deserved his goal.”
