Goalkeeper Sam Hornby chose to “take the positives” from City's 0-0 draw with Colchester United in Sky Bet League Two. 

Last night's clash was the 26-year-old’s first league start of the season - which he marked with a clean sheet. 

While Hornby was disappointed with City only taking a point from the encounter, he insists there were positives to take from the performance. 

He said: “There was disappointment in the dressing room. 

“In the first half, we were brilliant going forward, and created a lot of opportunities in the first 20 minutes. 

“We were sharp, lively, got the ball forward quickly, and created some openings. But, in the end, it finished 0-0. 

“We take the positive of a clean sheet, and the lads in front of me were brilliant from top to bottom. 

“We just have to take it on the chin, look at what we need to do to improve, and move onto the next game.”

Hornby was thrilled to make his first league appearance of the season between the sticks, and to keep a clean sheet. 

He is hoping to continue the hard work in an attempt to keep his place and continue pushing. 

He added: “It was nice to get back out there. 

“I have worked hard and got my head down on the training ground, so it was good to be rewarded with a start. Hopefully, I can build on this. 

“Sometimes, it is better to keep a clean sheet and not have much to do than keep one having to make plenty of saves. 

“It was also nice to be out there in front of the fans, and they were right behind us once again.”
