Boss Lee Sinnott was proud of his Gainsborough Trinity players for extending their unbeaten run in all competitions to seven matches on Saturday.

Trinity picked up a valuable away point in a tough goalless draw at Witton Albion.

It left the Holy Blues in the play-off places in fifth — but with a match in hand on those above them in the Northern Premier League table.

Their previous match had been the eight-goal FA Cup triumph over Chasetown.

Sinnott said: “Tuesday (The FA Cup) was free flowing and then this was a war of attrition and tight.

“I am pleased that we are taking something back. The performance gives me a lot of pride.

“It was a bit of a war of attrition. There were not any outstanding chances.

“The players stuck to their task well. Sometimes you can lose those games and in the last 10 minutes we came on a little bit.

“But did we do enough to win it? No. Did they? No. You want to win every game but a draw was a fair result.

“Taking everything into consideration we are pleased with the point.

“You can’t fault the players for their application.”

Sinnott said the players wanted to extend their unbeaten run for as long as they could as Trinity bid to make an immediate return to National league North.

He said: “All we can do is concentrate on the next game.

“The league table will look after itself as long we look after the next game.”

The manager hailed the vocal away following that has backed the club this season.

“We had a tremendous away following (at Witton), he said.

“People have to make the effort. We have been on the road for four out of five matches on Saturdays and we are very appreciative of their efforts.”

Trinity are away again on Saturday in the FA Cup at Halesowen Town.
