Development Coach talks to htafc.com following Leeds draw
Steve Eyre told htafc.com that he was satisfied with his team's performance following the 0-0 draw with Leeds United on Monday afternoon.
Neither team created any gilt edge openings with Leeds’ Paul Rachubka the busier of the two ‘keepers as he fended off a number of Town efforts from range in the first half.
“I have just discussed the game with Neil (Redfearn) and we both agree that it was very much like a war of attrition at times,” said Steve.
“We were the better team in the first half and only an excellent performance from Leeds’ ‘keeper kept the scores level – we could have come in two or three goals up. We realised that they would improve in the second-half and that stopped our attacking flow. It was like deadlock in the second half and 0-0 was probably a fair result.
“I couldn’t have asked for anymore effort, and tactically we changed shape a number of times to try and break down Leeds. Their back four played well today, were very committed and stopped us getting through – we didn’t get close enough to score a goal. We worked their ‘keeper from distance, but never got within four or five yards.”
The clean sheet was Town’s first of the season something Steve and his men had been aiming for ahead of the game.
“It was a talking point about ahead of the game as it is something that has evaded us this season. We always try and keep a clean sheet because if you stay tight at the back you always have a chance of nicking a goal at the other end. On another day we would have scored two or three.”
He continued: “Lloyd didn’t have much to do; there were a couple of snap shots that missed the target. We attacked well through Sean Scannell and Jimmy Spencer, but couldn’t find a way of getting in behind their defence.”
