Sheridan: “I Wouldn’t Like To Play Against Us At The Moment.”

6 April 2016

Manager John Sheridan is delighted with his side’s current run of form and believes they are tough opposition to face at the moment.

A goal in either half was enough to secure Latics the victory against Swindon Town with Liam Kelly opening the scoring on 10 minutes, whilst Curtis Main added the second in the final 10 minutes.

And Sheridan, who has seen his side record three back-to-back clean sheets, was delighted with the work ethic of his player.

He said: "I thought we fully deserved the result. The most important thing is getting the three points from every game we play. 

“It was a tricky game tonight as Swindon are a good passing side, even though they have been leaking goals recently. 

"They can really hurt you and I was aware of that before the game. I don’t think we pass teams off the pitch but I tell you what, I wouldn’t like to play against us at the moment. 

"We work our socks off, and we got in Swindon’s face tonight and made it difficult for them. The stamina in the team was excellent and I think we overpowered them and deserved the points.

"We work our socks off as a team. We try and play and make it as easy as possible to defend. When you get a clean sheet, it’s good for the defenders and goalkeeper but I think from 1-11 it was a good performance.”

The manager does not like singling out praise on an individual but had a special mention for his captain Liam Kelly last night: “I thought he was excellent tonight,” he admitted. 

"His work ethic was fantastic. I try not to pick out individuals but I think he led by example and there were a few not far behind him.”

Main, on loan from relegation rivals Doncaster Rovers, notched his first goal for the club last night and the gaffer was delighted that his hard work final paid off.

"I’m really pleased for him. I’ve just shook his hand and said you deserved a goal and that will get him going and hopefully bang a few more in,” he said.

"The goals inside the six yard box are the best goals and he finished it really smartly. The goal gave us leeway and allowed me to take one or two players off and see the game through.”
