THE Seagulls extended their unbeaten league record to five games with a goalless draw at Trafford (Sept 5).
Manager Phill Hadland changed the formation of his side and was pleased with a clean sheet after conceding four goals at Droylsden four days earlier, but with four draws and a win in the five games played, he knows the side have to start turning draws into wins.
“After last Saturday the priority was to be a lot tighter at the back and I thought we achieved that with the changes we made, but then we lacked a cutting edge up front,” he said.
“Trafford brought in a couple of key new signings and in the end a draw is not a bad result, although part of me is disappointed we didn’t quite do enough up front to force the win.”
Only a flying save by Trafford keeper Grant Shenton kept out a 30 yard screamer from Louis Barnes in the first half and the Bay got in plenty of shots which were blocked or off target , without really working the keeper enough.
