Newport Pagnells Daren Dykes on their 1-0 win at Oadby:
"Very good win today away to an improving Oadby side. Tough conditions, a boggy pitch & 10 men makes it even more pleasing.
First half we couldn't really get a foothold in the game. The conditions stopped us playing our usual style of football & Oadby were definitely the better side. Saying that we still carved out 2-3 great chances to go in on top but as usual of late we didn't take them.
Second half we was by far the better side. We could & should have been 2 or even 3 up inside the first 15. A defensive error shortly after led to a straight red for us & a pen for Oadby. Fearing the worst from the sideline (being down to 10 men, 1-0 down & rueing more missed chances) our keeper Mark Osbourne who was outstanding all day made a great save. We reshuffled & never really looked like conceding from then on really. We had another 2 decent chances before we finally took one with Fazel finishing off a decent move down the left hand side. We dug in & saw the game out without really being tested.
We now have 3 games on the bounce at home starting with Wellingborough on Tuesday. Come on you Swans!"
