Manager Micky Adams refused to get too carried away with his side’s performance against Tranmere, but he was pleased with most aspects of the team’s play.
The Valiants defeated League One outfit Tranmere Rovers 2-0 in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy with both goals coming from winger Jennison Myrie-Williams.
Adams told the Sentinel: “At times we looked very, very good.
“Let’s not kid ourselves, Tranmere were missing some good players, but you can only beat what’s in front of you.
“I was pleased with how we were playing even at 0-0 at half-time and their keeper made a couple of good saves.
“It’s another clean sheet, which will give confidence to the keeper and the back four.
“But we picked up a couple of sloppy bookings and we were letting too many crosses in late on, as can happen in cup games. We need to make sure that doesn’t happen in the league.”
Meanwhile, Myrie-Williams was pleased with his two goals adding: “The free-kick is up there with the best goals I’ve scored.
“I’ve been practising a lot in pre-season and they don’t always turn out that way, but that one did.
“I want to chip in my fair share of goals this season, I’m confident and I believe I should be getting goals to help the team. The most important thing was to win the game.”
