WE’VE had three fantastic wins on the trot now and we’re starting to catch up the points we missed out on when we kept having to play with 10 men.
We’ve also had three clean sheets, which is great, and as the gaffer says, if you keep clean sheets, you will win games.
The defence has been solid in the last few games, but to be honest I don’t think they were doing too much wrong before – it’s a bit of a deceiving statistic that we’d only had one clean sheet before this run of games.
The lads at the back had been up against it in so many games because of getting players sent off, and we could be much higher in the table.
The defence are solid, and if anyone else comes into that setup, they know what they have to do as well, and I’m sure they’d do well.
It’s been the same five lads at the back for the past few games, and I think that stability is important in the defensive unit.
But we’re defending from the front, and I think the lads up top and in midfield are doing well too.
The form of the lads who have the shirts at the moment has meant a few lads have had to sit out, which is unfortunate for them.
But when they’re called on, they’ll be ready.
I’m one of those, having missed the last two games, and obviously I’m disappointed because I want play every minute of every game.
Whenever the gaffer told me I’d be on the bench, I tried not to make it the longest conversation, because you can end up saying something you regret and talking yourself into trouble.
I’m someone who always wants to be playing, so it has been tough watching from the sidelines.
Hopefully I can get back in the team, and we’ll just have to see what happens over the next couple of weeks.
It was just that the boys got the winner at the end on Saturday – they definitely deserved it.
Exeter tried to play football without really going anywhere, and for an away side, I thought we did incredibly well.
I thought Jordan Pickford was exceptional at the weekend, and the saves he made probably won us the game.
Sometimes people only notice when goalkeepers make mistakes, but some of the saves Jordan made were absolutely fantastic.
He’s a good lad to have around as well – he’s nice and bubbly – and since he’s been here he’s been good.
With him and Dean Lyness, we’ve got good competition for places.
We’ve got a home game today against Morecambe, and I don’t think our home form has actually been that bad despite some of the results here.
It looks like it’s going to be a tough league, and after last season, people have realised this is a tough place to come.
We were a bit of an underdog last season, but now teams know they have to look at us in a bit more depth – although they should be doing that anyway.
That’s a real pat on the back to everyone at Burton.
