Dan Happy With Clean Sheet

11 September 2021

Daniel Iversen was pleased to keep a clean sheet in the goalless draw against Bristol City, but felt PNE could have won on another day with the chances created.

North End had good opportunities throughout the game, with the likes of Sepp van den Berg and Sean Maguire coming close, the latter striking the bar in the closing stages of the first half.

Defensively, North End looked strong and Iversen was called into action a few times, keeping his second shut-out in the last three Championship games.

He told iFollow PNE: “We’re away from home so we take the point, but we’re also a little bit disappointed with all the chances we had. It’s always good to get a clean sheet, but of course we want to win the game.

“If we don’t win the game we have to get a point and we got that, so it’s positive we got the clean sheet but we need the three points, so it’s okay.

“I think their start was good in the first ten minutes, but then after ten minutes I think we had the game.

“We got big chances we had to score. In the second half we didn’t have a lot of chances, I think they had one or two, but they had all the second half really so a draw is a good result really.”

Daniel produced a couple of fantastic saves during the game at Ashton Gate, one of which saw him acrobatically keep out Rob Atkinson’s effort in the first half which looked to be heading right into the top corner.

He then had to produce another good stop to thwart Han-Noah Massengo in the second 45, with the midfielder seeing his goalbound effort tipped over the crossbar by the Dane.

Daniel said: “It’s always fun to get some good saves out so I’m pleased with that.
“It was moving around so I tried to get a hand on it and I got a hand on it; it was a good strike.”

Coming up next for Frankie McAvoy’s side is a double-header against two of the teams relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season: Sheffield United and West Brom.

Daniel added: “It’s a good test. Every game is a good test, it’s not easy to play against the teams relegated from the Premier League or League One teams coming up really, so all the games are difficult.”
