“I asked the lads to be more entertaining at home and I thought the first 45 minutes were certainly the best we’ve played since I’ve been here,” said Wilcox.

“We had 16 attempts at their goal today. But again it boils down to both boxes and being a bit more clinical.

“Certainly in the first half when we dominated you’ve got to score and we didn’t.”
