Glynn Snodin: Result The Important Thing

29 March 2014

The North End assistant manager spoke after the team’s first ever win over Crawley Town and felt that the three points was vital.

The Lilywhites won the game thanks to Joe Garner’s first half header, with a 20th clean sheet of the season enough to make it six points from two home games in a week.

And although it was not a game to live long in the memory, the PNE No.2 felt that this was not important: “At this stage of the season the performance doesn’t matter, as long as you get the three points,” he said.

“It was a great goal, from a great cross. Joe has been in magnificent form all season and he could have had a hat-trick on another day.

“At half-time we asked the players to try and keep hold of the ball a bit more and play with it, because they have some dangerous players that can hurt you and it would have been easier if we’d finished one of the chances we had, but their keeper did well to make a couple of saves.”

And Glynn was delighted to end the week with back-to-back home wins, a positive reaction after the previous weekend’s first defeat in 13.

“We said to the lads last Monday that if we could get six points this week then we would be back in it and when we came back in other teams had dropped points,” he continued.

“At this stage of the season everything matters; every missing chance matters and people get nervous. We have been there before and we know what it is like and hopefully we can keep producing wins and other teams drop points down the line.”

Another shut out delighted the North End staff and players, making it 20 without conceding during the campaign: “Defending starts from the front; closing down, pressing in the midfield, so I know the back five usually gets credit, but at this Club everybody works hard.

“We are trying to keep everybody fresh. We changed the side around today and gave Bailey a rest, to make sure everybody is ready for the last six games.

“It is great when you can leave Bails out – who has been magnificent – and Jack and Tom did well as a two. Whoever plays wants that shirt and is fighting for the shirt and that’s what we need.

“Scott [Wiseman] isn’t as bad as we thought he might be and he will work with the physios and hopefully should be back with us before too long,” he added.
