GEORGE | CLEAN SHEETS COME FROM COLLECTIVE EFFORT

23 February 2022

"It was one of those nights but you have to take the positives still"

George Edmundson has emphasised that Town's impressive defensive run has come from the whole squad working together.

The Blues, who last conceded away to Sheffield Wednesday at the end of January, have equalled a Club record by keeping five consecutive clean sheets.

Although last night's goalless draw with Cheltenham created an overall feeling of frustration, George said the clean sheet run is a source of pride for Kieran McKenna's side.

"Clean sheets aren't just about the back five or six, it's a collective effort," George, who has played every minute of Town's 534-minute shutout run, said.

“We attack as a team and defend as a team. Keeping clean sheets is what we as defenders look for, so the backline is pleased with the recent run.

"We need to keep at it and aim for more. We must continue to do the basics well and improve.

"Of course, the main feeling from the Cheltenham game is two points dropped, but we created chances and on another night we could have won by three or four. It was one of those nights but you have to take the positives still.

"It's another clean sheet, and, as I say, we created the chances. The final pass or shot didn't quite come off, though. Again that's on us all, not just the attackers. I had one chance and didn't get enough on it and Woolfy [Luke Woolfenden] had another from a corner.

"Saturday is a new game and hopefully we can bounce back with three points."
