BOSS Quentin Townsend was left with mixed emotions after Saturday’s 0-0 bore draw at home to Nuneaton Griff.

The centre-half in him celebrated more than most a clean sheet but it was tempered by a lack of action.

Pershore’s Alfie Bloomer hitting the post and Griff having an effort cleared off the line was about all anyone had to shout about across the 90 minutes.

“I was pleased and disappointed at the same time,” said Townsend.

“The clean sheet put a smile on my face as always but it was one of the dourest games I have been involved with. Neither side did enough to win.”

The solid platform at least stands Town in good stead for trips to Heath Hayes on Saturday (3pm) and Heather St Johns on Tuesday (7.45).

“For the first time in quite a while I will have 20-odd players to pick from which has good and bad points,” added Townsend.

“It gives you a selection headache which is good, we have strength in depth but it also means four or five people don’t make the squad. It can only be healthy, though."

Chris Bright should return ahead of the weekend.
