Centre back Adam Long happy with another clean sheet, but insists Latics will do more to break teams down in the coming weeks.
- EFL Youth Alliance: Adam Long reacts to Latics' 0-0 draw with Fleetwood Town.
- Latics now 11 points clear as league leaders.
- "We've been a solid defensive unit all season." - Adam Long.
Speaking after Latics' 0-0 draw away at Fleetwood Town on Saturday morning, central defender Adam Long gave his thoughts after his side's third straight draw in the EFL Youth Alliance, a division they now lead by an impressive 11 points.
After picking up the team's 14th clean sheet in all competitions, the 18-year-old said:
“Teams are seeing how we play so they’re just wanting to sit off us, put eleven men behind the ball and make life difficult for us.
“We’ve been a solid defensive unit all season so it’s pleasing, especially when you get the clean sheet, it helps you get a bit more recognition.
“It wasn’t our game, we didn’t take our chances which happens sometimes, Divin (Baningime) had a few but we will work on taking them in the next game.
“Everyone’s looking forward to the Bury game, it will be a bit more tactical in terms of our preparation in the week but hopefully we can go there and show what were made of”.
