Bully tells it straight

Bully tells it straight


Goalkeeper Nikki Bull was the hero yet again on Saturday - making several crucial saves to preserve a point for the Blues at Aldershot's Recreation Ground.

Speaking to Chairboys' player after the game, the keeper gave his perspective on the team's performance and their disappointing start to the season.

Bull felt the players put a few things right after last week's 'diabolical' performance against Macclesfield but admitted there was still plenty of room for improvement.

"I thought the effort and the endeavour was there, and the workrate," he said. "Obviously we can still improve in so many areas, but we'll get there - it's not where you are after seven games, it's where you are at the end of the season and we're still confident and believe that come the end of the season we'll be where we need to be."

"The Wycombe fans turned out in their numbers today. Credit to every one of them that made the journey because we've not exactly been setting the world alight so far this season."

"They're not going to go home overjoyed and think that we've cracked it, but small steps - we're getting there."

"We didn't set the world alight today but I thought every one of us put in a shift and that's all the manager can really ask of us. The minimum that we expect at Wycombe is to work hard for each other individually, and like I say - we'll get it right, we'll get there."

"Rome wasn't built in a day and we've just got to hope that we get it together sooner rather than later so the teams at the top don't get too far away from us."

"I don't know if we're playing with a bit of fear at the moment - always waiting for things to happen rather than going and making things happen - we've all got so much belief in the manager and what he's trying to get us to do, that sooner rather than later what I'm seeing in training has got to come out on a match day."

Bull seems almost puzzled by Wycombe's poor start, but one thing's for sure - while we all wait for things to click up-front - it's just as well we have a keeper of his quality to keep them out at the other end.
