Afterwards Pete Stiles, was content. “After Tuesday, I was looking for a reaction, and the lads certainly gave one today. It wasn’t pretty and one goal was probably going to win it, but we were solid for most of the game rarely giving them a decent look at goal.” “When you also consider who we had missing today as well, it stands us in good stead for some more difficult games coming up.”
