Woods ‘frustrated’ with Doncaster stalemate
Calum Woods believes Town had the better chances during today’s 0-0 stalemate at home to Doncaster Rovers and is targeting a return to winning ways against Charlton on Tuesday night.
“We’re disappointed we haven’t got all three points because we had a few good chances to win the game, although I know they had a couple in the first-half; more than we did coming into half-time,” Calum told htafc.com.
“We’re all frustrated. You want to picking up maximum points at home, but today we have to take the draw. Unfortunately it didn’t happen for us today, but that’s football. Joel probably came closest when he hit the bar near the end, although I’m not totally sure what he was doing up there!
“I think we had the better of the chances overall and we could have come away with the win, but on the plus side we’ve done well to keep a clean sheet today.”
Although Town started the game in their usual shape, changes in personnel and a subsequent switch in shape heralded the Terriers’ most creative period in the second-half.
Calum explained: “The Manager wanted us to get it down and pass it in our 3-5-2 formation and we were trying to get the ball down, get it out wide and play through them. We ended up changing it and although we were still trying to pass it when we could, we could also go a little bit more direct.
“Steady did really well when he came on; he made a big difference. He created a couple of chances and he was a bit unlucky not to get an assist.”
On a personal note, Woods was pleased to play his first 90 minutes of the season.
“This was my first start of the season and the Manager just asked me to go out and put a performance in – to defend and then get forward when I could. I’m happy to play anywhere; as long as I’m playing, I’m happy!
“I’m buzzing to be fit again, because it’s been a frustrating start to the season for me. I did my shoulder in pre-season and missed all the games, came back and made a couple of substitute appearances and then picked up a slight thigh strain. To start today and get 90 minutes has done me the world of good fitness-wise.”
Calum and the squad must now quickly refocus ahead of the visit of Charlton Athletic on Tuesday evening.
“You want to win every home game, so now we have to move onto the next one against Charlton on Tuesday. We’ll be targeting three points. We’ve already played them once this season, so both teams know what they’re coming up against.”
