PDC - A Very Good Performance

5 January 2013

TOWN manager Paolo Di Canio spoke to the media after his team's 4-0 win over Carlisle.

On the performance…
It was very good, probably the best of the season. It came after two 5-0 wins against a side that could have put us in a trap. It was a typical banana skin so I am very happy today. My players kept going all game and continued to try and score goals. I am very with the happy with the way we played and the result is a consequence of the way we played.

On the squad…
I must say thanks to the lads again. We brought a few players in before Christmas and we have quality in the squad. I was sure we would turn things but I am surprised by how many goals we have scored. The players have taken ten steps forward in terms of maturity and are always asking for more information on the training ground. They believe this team is a real group. 

On the goals…
All of the goals came from good movement. They have been working hard in training and that’s been important. The first goal came from a simple throw and it was a superb finish – an amazing technical gesture. The other goals were beautiful too. 

On defensive efforts…
Defensively we have done well but I still think about the one we conceded against Doncaster. I am happy with the defensive line but if the opponents don’t arrive on the edge of the box it’s because the midfield four and front two have been working well. Even when we train at the Liddington the players are like ferocious animals – they are so determined. Look at Nathan Thompson with his run in the second half, he showed what kind of determination is in the team. He has become more mature too.

On moving forward…
Next week we will play a very good side in Bournemouth and that will be a key side. The players will have a day off tomorrow but they will start again on Monday and we will go again.

On transfer news…
I want to keep Chris Martin and Danny Hollands here. I will do everything in my power to keep the group together. Danny desperately wants to stay here and I will keep my mobile phone by my side because I want to do everything. There has been some interest in Aden Flint from other clubs but we would like to keep him here.

On the crowd…
It was a fantastic crowd again today and I must thank them. I hope the fans keep coming back because they are crucial for us. They keep the adrenaline running for the players and they were amazing. I told the players keep both feet on the ground and that’s the same for the fans. Keep your voices high.
