Hodges happy with our battling display...
THE WHITE Tigers made it five wins in a row on Tuesday evening as Rocky Neal's goal was enough to see off the challenge of Chippenham Town.
"We had to show a different type of character,"admitted manager, Lee Hodges. "In difficult conditions, we started the game on the back-foot and had to defend for long spells in the opening 25 minutes or so.
"That said, whilst our opponents dominated most of the possession during the first half, it was us who created the better of the chances.
"We came out much brighter for the second period and continued to create opportunities and found another match-winner from the substitutes’ bench as Rocky Neal grabbed the all-important goal.
"It shows the strength in depth that we have here this season as players are consistently coming off the bench to make telling contributions.
"It’s important that we have this kind of competition for the battles that lie ahead."
