on another comprehensive win…
The performance was very pleasing. Boreham Wood is a lovely pitch and it was a nice game. The lads have had a very good pre-season and we will see how we go over the next couple of games [ahead of the new season].

on pleasing aspects of pre-season so far…
The pleasing thing has been the way we have been passing the ball really quickly and the little tactical changes we are asking them to make.

on the fitness of the squad…
The fitness is coming along really well. The fitness guys are doing a brilliant job and, as you can see, the players look really sharp. They are still a couple of weeks away and we will fine-tune them over the next couple of weeks. We are on track for the start of the new season when we play a little team called Manchester United!
