ANDY Allardice thinks Dudley Town took a big step in the right direction thanks to Saturday’s draw with Pegasus Juniors.

The manager had seen his side lose their previous seven games, conceding 29 goals and scoring just five.

However, the Robins battled to a point at the Dell last weekend and could have bagged the win when hitting the woodwork on four occasions.

Allardice said: “It was a much better performance from us and we should have had all three.

“We went a goal down again but this time we battled back. Our problem has been the way our heads drop when we go behind but that didn’t happen this time.

“We had spoke before about the mentality we need to have and we showed that against Pegasus. The players didn’t let it faze them and they fought back to level it.

“After that we should really have won. We hit the bar twice and the post twice but just couldn’t find the winner.

“There were a lot of pleasing things to take from the game and hopefully our next win isn’t too far away now.

Town, who handed debuts from the bench to under-18s Jordan Davies and Ryan Bridgwater last weekend, will now go to second-from-bottom side Stone Old Alleynians this Saturday.
