St Neots Town manager Matt Clements says results are more important than performances at this stage in the season, particularly in terms of selling the club to potential new signings.
The boss didn’t feel as if his side hit the required standards in terms of the way they played in Saturday’s game, but says he’d take the three points over a good display at present.
“On reflection, the performance wasn’t great, our standards weren’t fantastic. We’ve played better and picked up nothing this year, so all in all I’m pleased. At this stage in the season, that’s all that matters now,” Clements said.
“Very rarely have I demanded a win. I’ve demanded a performance. I believe that if the performance is right, normally points follow.
“At this time of year when the games come thick and fast, you don’t have that much time to work on performances because the games keep coming.
“As much as we still want to play in a certain style, it is about building for next year as well. When you’re talking to players or trying to attract new players, you want to be able to say that you’ve got a cup in the cabinet and you’ve got 66 points, which looks and sounds good.
“[It’s harder] to try to convince players to come or stay saying we’ve got 60 points, and we lost a cup final, but we’ve played good football.
