Ritchie Sutton happy with a clean sheet away at Yeovil

21 October 2018

Tranmere Rovers defender Ritchie Sutton was happy with a clean sheet after the stalemate against Yeovil Town.

The experienced centre half made his third appearance in a Rovers shirt this term as he replaced Adam Buxton in Micky Mellon’s starting eleven in Somerset.

Speaking to the media after the game, Sutton said: “With the chance late on, Nors (Norwood) is disappointed he didn’t do better with that but you take any clean sheet and point away from home, especially with how far we’ve come, we will take that point and move onto Tuesday night.

“It was a tight game with two teams battling it out, they’ve had a bad run of results but we’re an inform team so we’re disappointed not come away with the three points but as I say you can never turn away a clean sheet away from home and a point.

“We changed it a little bit in the second half and tried to get Harvey a little close to Nors because he was a bit isolated and we needed to get more support to him, but we take the clean sheet; we worked hard for that and we dealt with their pressure so we are happy.”

“Steve and I have played together quite a lot, so it was easy dropping back in there to be honest. He’s a good leader and good talker and Manny did well, we’ve had a lot of injuries but this just shows how strong the squad is.

“We know what we’re capable of. I said last year once we came up that we’re not coming up just to consolidate; we’ve got the squad to kick on. We’ve got a lot of footballing experience in the squad and it has shown this year that we’ve got the ability to compete with the teams up there.”

On the upcoming Forest Green match, Sutton said: “We’ll just go about the game plan like we always do really, see what the game asks of us and you know go from there, we’ll go to Tuesday with the same attitude and with a game plan in place and see what happens.”
