United’s home draw on Saturday made it a run of seven games without defeat and, with still only one loss in the league all season, it all comes together for a very encouraging start to a campaign where, as we saw at the weekend, we’re all still demanding even more.
“I’ve said this before, if you can’t win a game make sure you don’t lose it,” manager Paul Simpson told us. “On Saturday we couldn’t win it and we made sure it didn’t go the other way.
“We defended ok as a team, because we had to, more than anything. We weren’t good enough in possession of the ball. It’s probably fair to say Hunts deserved being man of the match for us, because of the way he went about it, no-nonsense defending.
“I just wish we had a little bit more life about us to get something going forward. But being unbeaten is a lovely habit to have.
“I want to get into the habit of back-to-back wins as well, we haven’t managed that yet. That’s the challenge for us. Can we go and get two wins together.
“To achieve something, that’s what you have to do, that’s the challenge for us to get to a level where we’re winning games consecutively on run of two, three or four.
“If you’re picking up points like that on the spin it doesn’t half make a difference.”
