Gary McCann was more than satisfied following the draw at Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday afternoon.

He said, "I think we'll be happier to come away with a draw than they were. But we don't go into any game not thinking about and trying to win. All in all, I think it was a point gained - and I don't often say that about our draws.

"It was a game we set up to leave certain players in possession and to look to break on their mistakes. I don't think we were good enough in the way that we played in the first half.

"I made the changes in the second half because we needed to change the way that we played. Peter Dean and Belal Aite-Ouakrim offer different things to Tony Taggart and Leon Smith and we created more chances after the substitutions.

"Both goalkeepers made two very good saves, but neither team really did enough to win the game and neither did too little to deserve to lose it. So I think a draw was the right result.

"I will be giving the players a night off from training on Monday/Tuesday. A few will see the physio, but for the core it will be the first night off since the season started."

McCann also looked forward to the weekend FA Trophy tie at Bury Town. "Any team in our division won't be easy, and Bury had a very good win against Tonbridge last weekend.

"We really want to do well in the Trophy this season. It is very important to get a few wins in the competition because it will help our financial position."
