“It was good for our fitness with a lot of running, but, unfortunately, a lot of it was in the wrong direction.
“We gave away a lot of possession. We wanted to play better and pick our passes, but it was quite sticky. Still, it was really good in terms of our fitness.
“You lose a lot when you are away for a month. You go from playing well, then have three weeks out and you come back like a Fourth Division player.
”It was only a pre-season game, but the second-half was a lot better. The boys who played in the last 30 minutes did very well. The manager spoke to us at the end. It was a good session and he wanted to tell the players that.
“We know it’s a very important few weeks for us and we need to be switched on straight away. We didn’t play our best football at this time last year.
