Getting on the front foot

29 April 2013

Chris Morgan gave his thoughts on the goalless draw with Preston North End, before looking forward to Friday's first-leg clash with Yeovil Town on Friday night.

On the stalemate with the Lilywhites, Morgan remarked: "We obviously wanted a win but it wasn't to be. It was one of those games where it was always going to be down to us to get on the front foot and force the issue.

"In fairness to Preston they had nothing but pride to play for and on the final whistle their season was over and they could look forward to the summer and pre-season.

"The positive was to keep a clean sheet ahead of potential three massive games and as we proved last season if you don't concede it only takes one break at the other end to progress.

"We have a great crop of young players coming through, but they needed the experience of the crowd at Bramall Lane. Saturday will give them a good taste of what it will be like when over 20,000 are in the stadium.

"Working with the first-team throughout the week has aided the development of the youngsters, but nothing can replicate game situations, especially ones of the nature of the play-offs.

"I honestly believe we have a fantastic mix of players and we must look to use them the best we can in the next few weeks or so."

Looking ahead, Morgan added: "The lads have remained focused, we will train on Monday morning and that is where the road to Wembley begins."
