Reaction: Tozer on Morecambe

18 August 2019

A clean sheet away from home at Morecambe is a real positive for this Cheltenham Town side according to captain Ben Tozer.

The defender helped play a part in helping the Robins claim a point on the road at Morecambe on Saturday in a goalless draw against the Shrimps.

It was Cheltenham's first clean sheet of the campaign, and having conceded three goals at Bristol Rovers in the Carabao Cup in midweek at Bristol Rovers, Tozer felt it was important that him and his teammates started recording shutouts on the road if they are to help improve the club's away form in League Two.

“After the Leyton Orient game we spoke about that if we are 0-0 going into half time in the second half the minimum is a clean sheet," he said. "As much as you want to win the game you’ve got to first and foremost look after that clean sheet away from home especially.

“If you are at home you take the initiative a bit more and you push on to try and take that win.

“In the last 15 minutes of the game I thought we were excellent like we were first half. We rode the storm at the start of the second half but I think there are positive signs for an away game.

“If you look at the squad we took I’d say the average age was pretty low compared to normal. There are us old ones bringing the age up! We dug in and showed what we can do away from home and that’s the benchmark now for away games.”
