Manager Neil Lennon has said there are plenty of positives he can take from the two all draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend.

A Zack Clough brace saw us fight from behind to take a point at the Macron Stadium, but had we been able to hold out in injury time it would’ve been all three, and whilst the gaffer told the Official Site that he felt our performance merited all three points, and there was an obvious disappointment at losing the goal right at the death – there were still plenty of positives that left him relatively happy.

‘There are positives in our performance, but on the whole it’s very disappointing because we feel like we had the game won. Henry has no other option but to shoot late on and we should deal with it a lot better. There’s no doubted that we should see the game out. I don’t think Andy had a save to make at all in the second half.’

Lennon admitted that going behind to begin with was also a disappointment for him, because it was another poor goal from our point of view, but he was delighted with the response of the players at that point.

‘Some of the football we played in the first half was breath taking. We’ve suffered another injury blow losing Darren Pratley in the second half. We’re very short in terms of our squad at the moment. At times we’re putting square pegs in round holes. Saying that, we felt we had more than enough about us to see the game out. Second half we looked comfortable and when we have the ball in the corner late on we should be winning the game.’

The gaffer went on to say really he didn’t feel that Wolves caused us many problems, nor did they ‘do anything to really affect the game’ and that’s the major source of disappointment because we lost the extra two points rather than Wolves winning a point back.

With Clough getting the brace and Adam Le Fondre making his debut following his international clearance coming in ahead of the game, Lennon was however delighted with their efforts.

‘In Le Fondre we had a real threat upfront. He was outstanding from start to finish and there’s no doubting he’ll score goals for us. In Zach we think we’ve found a very good player. He played very well.’

With injuries hitting left, right and centre, he also joked that at the moment the medical room looked busier than our dressing room, so with the deadline approaching later tonight he will be trying to get a few more bodies in to give us some cover.
