On-loan defender Cameron Gayle expressed his delight with the defensive shutout as Town held a domineering Brentfold to a goalless draw at the Greenhous Meadow.
“It was a really tough game but I thought we defended very well,” said Gayle.
“They’re doing well and they’re up there in the league, so that was a really good point because they’re high-flying.”
A first clean sheet in seven against a side who had won their previous five League One games pleased Gayle and took Town’s own impressive run to just one defeat in eight matches.
“We’ve been playing well but we’ve been letting in sloppy goals towards the end of games, and even some at the start. As a defender, my first calling really is to keep goals out so I’m really happy with the clean sheet.
“We’re really building in confidence, we just need to get that win now and then we’ll be moving up the table. It’s been a lot of draws, but its better drawing than losing. We just need to keep the goals out at the back like today and hopefully we’ll start to win more games.”
Unbeaten so far in the busy festive period with three draws, Town now complete their gruelling schedule of four games in 11 days with a trip to a rejuvenated Coventry and Gayle admits that they’ll have to dig in deep to get anything at the Ricoh Arena.
“We’ve got Coventry on New Years Day and that’s a big game. The games have been coming thick and fast so it’s really hard on the legs to be honest, but hopefully we’ll get the win there and then push on for the rest of the season.
“It’ll be a tough one, especially away from home as well, so we’ll have to dig in deep again and hopefully we’ll get some points on the board.”
