Page backs Johnson and won’t “dwell” on mistake

Page backs Johnson and won’t “dwell” on mistake

Manager Rob Page has backed keeper Sam Johnson as he is set to deputise for Chris Neal against Crewe.

Johnson was responsible for Altrincham’s opener on Saturday after a poor clearance but Page is behind the 22 year-old.

It is pre season and that is why we are here. Mistakes are going to be made and that is why we would rather it be made here than in the league games…

The manager told the Sentinel:  “We are disappointed to conceded a goal after three minutes when we had started brightly. Of course it is not ideal but we are not going to dwell on it.

“It is pre season and that is why we are here. Mistakes are going to be made and that is why we would rather it be made here than in the league games where the points matter.

“It’s all part and parcel of having pre-season games.”
