Late goals from Jason Pearce and Matt Smith proved to be the difference for the Sky Bet Championship outfit and Hockaday said he was happy with what he saw on the pitch.

He told the club's official website: "What I wanted to do was dominate possession against a good footballing team and I wanted to keep a clean sheet

"I am happy with that and it is what we do with the ball now that we need to work on.

"The basic culture of the team is going to be different now, we want to keep the ball and we need to get better in the final third."

The Whites played two teams against the Conference North side. The first XI played the first 60 minutes, with the second group playing the last 30 minutes.

Hockaday added: "At the moment we are trying different formations and combinations.

"It is all about fitness but the fact is that we have kept a clean sheet, we've won the game and we dominated possession, they are three great things.

"In the final third we need to have better quality. If that was the case we could have run out very comfortable winners."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
