'If It's Football, It's Vital'

A step in the right direction

Things couldn't be sweeter for Gudjon tonight; a win and a clean sheet inch the Alex within 5 points of the safety spots.

It was also time for bragging rights. Fans were calling for the white coats when Gudjon named six defenders in the starting 11 for Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Leyton Orient. However, tonight's decision to play five at the back paid off, seeing it earn us a very rare clean sheet.

Thordarson told crewealex.net that he doesn't worry if those type of decisions upset fans:

'I decided to go with three central defenders and I'm not afraid to change things. It is something I have done throughout my career and that is why I am a football manager. You have to be postitive and make decisions that may be questioned by the supporters and critics at times.'

On tonight's 1-0 win, thanks to Billy Jones's 30 yard first half free kick, Thordarson called it a 'professional win' and he was pleased to get his first away win as Alex manager.

'It was nice for us to win away from home and good for the players and the supporters to know that we can do it. I've been on to the players to have more faith in their ability. It was a really professional performance from the players and I thought we had enough chances to kill the game off as well.

'It was very important for us to bounce back after the result at Leyton Orient and to get something here is a massive step in the right direction for us as a team.'

We now sit just five points off Leyton Orient and Swindon, who occupy the two spots just outside the relegation zone.

With two home games to come in the next seven days it's a good chance take another massive step towards safety before two huge games against relegation rivals Brighton and Hereford, with a home tie against Carlisle sandwiched inbetween.

One thing's for sure.... nails will be bitten.
