Hill believes draw was point gained

Chris Dagnall netted with 20 minutes remaining to cancel out Chris Herd's opener and earn a point for the League Two leaders.

"It was a point gained for us because in the first half we played right into the opposition's strategy," said Hill. "They dropped deep quickly and we had too many negative passes in and around the back four and midfield area.

"We were coming safe-side for the ball and the players have got to recognise that a bit earlier. We got our gameplan together a bit better in the second half, but they deserved something out of the game for the way they came here and set out their stall.

"They didn't have to come and try to compete with us to win the match and from their perspective their use of tactics was excellent. It wasn't so much two banks of four as one bank of 10.

"Once they got the goal, their tactics were working to a treat. We are just pleased to have got something from the game."
