Swindon Town stopper Stuart Moore was pleased with a clean sheet this afternoon, although he was disappointed not to have been on the winning side.

Phil Brown's side were held to a 0-0 draw by Colchester United earlier today, with Moore producing the save of the game to deny Drey Wright and secure a point for his team.

"It is always nice to keep a clean sheet," Moore told the local media in the wake of the game.

"I spoke to the Gaffer before the game and that's what he asked of the back-four and myself and that's all we can do.

"It is frustrating not to get the win but we'll take the clean sheet and add it to the tally.

"It is always nice to make them (the superb save to deny Drey Wright), obviously my job is to keep the ball out of the back of the net and I'll do anything to do that.

"All the lads at the back did well today, they were very solid and they made my job a lot easier.

"I feel as a team we're getting a lot stronger each week.

"You need to be able to get yourself up for every game of football you go into, no matter what is on it and today was about the three points.

"Every game we play we want those three points."

And Moore was pleased to be back in the side today after missing out last week due to a dislocated thumb.

"It was nice to come back in," he added.

"I was disappointed to miss out last week, I actually dislocated my thumb in training so it was good to be back.

"It was quite swollen the first couple of days but I was determined to get back into the side, I wasn't going to miss out on any football and sometimes you've just got to grit your teeth and get through it."
