Derek Adams was impressed with a number of individual performance as his side drew 1-1 with Chester FC at the Deva Stadium.
New signing Ash Hunter was one of them, and found the back of the net towards the end of the first-half, and Adams has praised his new man’s influence in the opening 45 minutes.
“I thought that Ash Hunter and Ousmane Fane were very good in the first-half along with Dylan Connolly, the were taking the ball in and beyond," he said.
“You could see when they came off what a miss they were in the second-half, so in the end, we scored a really good goal through Hunter after he hit the post moments before.
“In the second-half, it wasn’t the same, we made changes and the game just became long after that, the goal we gave away was a poor goal defensively for us."
Attention now turns to back-to-back home games against Chris Wilder’s side Middlesbrough and Sky Bet League Two outfit Carlisle United respectively, with Adams planning to give more players 90 minutes with the new season just around the corner.
“Playing at home will be beneficial for us, we will be playing against a good opposition in Middlesbrough first of all before another competitive fixture in Carlisle," he added.
“They will both be competitive matches in their own right and we are looking forward to them, it changes because we have used a lot of players at the start of the season.
“We need to get 90 minutes into a number of players, it is important for us to improve but we are putting the right steps in place for another testing season."
