Teddy Sheringham reflected on the 0-0 draw against Luton Town as a “fair result” after one of the more eventful stalemates you will likely see.
The gaffer says that either team could have won the game and he is pleased to pick up a second clean sheet in three games.
“It was a game that I felt we could attack, get on the front-foot and take all three points today. As it worked out it was a very even, scrappy game. We knew it would be, there were chances at both ends and at the end of the day, a point is a fair result from my point of view.
“It was tough to keep them quiet today, they had a couple of little spells in the game when they came alive and it was pleasing to keep a clean sheet.”
New loan signing, Jamille Matt came on in the second half to partner Armand Gnanduillet and the manager was pleased with his contribution.
“They have not worked together very much, he (Jamille) came in on Thursday/Friday and I thought he looked quite lively.
“It is tough coming into a game like that but sometimes it suits players to come in and have half an hour after only training a couple of days with your teammates, it is sometimes better than going straight into the starting line-up.”
Next up for Boro is a trip to Bristol Rovers and Teddy says it is a trip the group are looking forward to.
“They come thick and fast – Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday. We have got a few injuries but we have got a big squad that I really like at the moment.
“We have got a lot of boys eager to show how good they are and we will go down to Bristol with a positive attitude and hopefully we will get a result.”
