Craig Denton was left feeling slightly disappointed despite Worksop’s opening day win but proclaimed its ‘all about the three points’.

After a scrappy first half Denton revealed nerves were possibly the reason for the team going ‘off-script’ but was pleased with an improved second half, he said ‘I’m a little bit disappointed to be fair, the first half an hour we were making decisions that we haven’t all pre-season and seemed to go off-script. We know that they were a few nerves, there’s fantastic travelling support and it brings a lot of pressure to play for Worksop Town. We came in after the first half and had a little chat, ironed out a few things and put in a better performance. At the end of the day it’s all about the three points for us’.

When asked what pleased him and maybe didn’t please him Denton said, ‘When you’re not playing so well and winning games they all count, there’s loads for us to work on but I’m just glad to get the first game out of the way and we can crack on now. I thought our two centre halves did well today but the back four took 20-30 minutes to get into the game. Craig Mitchell has done well up top but their back four have looked after people like Temps and Simmo and made it difficult for us. Overall it’s a good performance especially in the second half’.
