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."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
