Moore’s side have won just one of the last nine matches in all competitions but he continues to smile.

And he feels he can be pleased with plenty of positives from last weekend’s defeat to AFC Wimbledon and he lines his side up to play against Accrington Stanley on Saturday.

“What I’m buoyed with most is I saw signs of us coming back to where we’d been at,” he said.

“Those signs were good because we went to a difficult ground with difficult opponents and we took the game away from them in their own backyard.

“It was a dominant display but by two minor lapses of concentration, we weren’t able to see the game out which was the disappointing thing.

“But the big thing after that and what you want to do after a game like that is get back on the training pitch.

“We’ve taken positives out of the game and then you apply yourselves and improve on those positives, taking them into the next game this weekend.”
