The 34-year-old midfielder made his full debut for the club during the game following his move from Swindon last month.

And the performance against the promotion-chasing Grecians has given the Namibia international hope that the Shots will climb away from trouble at the bottom of the table.

He told BBC Surrey: "A lot of mechanisms still have to grip, but the signs were very promising. We thought before a point would be good, but we could have nicked it."

"The mood in this camp is quite good, they're all honest, decent lads and that's a good foundation.

"Every single game is a battle. Saturday against Plymouth you can say that's a six-pointer from the league table, but you can put too much pressure on yourselves that way.

"There are 18 games left and we want to pick up as many points as possible."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
