Outstanding Performance For Smith

Outstanding Performance For Smith

New head coach Dean Smith has hailed an 'outstanding' performance from the players in his first game in charge following yesterday's two nil victory over MK Dons.

Opening Griffin Park life with a victory and a clean sheet couldn't have made Smith happier, and quoted by the Official Site from his post game press conference, he beamed.

'It`s a great start and a performance to match. That was the thing that I asked the players for before the game, because when you have that the result normally follows. First half today I thought we were outstanding, it could and probably should have been three or four up at half time, which would have made the game a lot more comfortable.'

The 44 year old was also pleased with the shut out at the other end and he knows clean sheets will always give the side the foundation to go on and win matches.

'Defensively we were outstanding. The key to our win today was how good we were without the ball. If we`re going to go on and be successful that has to continue along with the hard work.'

With Alan McCormack in the initial starting eleven for the game, Smith went on to confirm that he pulled up 15 minutes before kick off with an injury, and at this stage he didn't know how serious it was but obviously he was hoping it would only be a short term thing.

'I always wait a little bit on injuries. I think 24 hours and then you get an idea of where the player`s at, but he felt his groin and this a league where you can`t go and risk anything. It was a quick change, look at the subs bench and Sergi`s been playing an awful lot, he knows how we play.'
