Michael Skubala says for his players to be disappointed not to have won shows how far they've come in the last couple of months, following his side's 0-0 home draw against Stevenage.

It was a stalemate against Steve Evans' sixth-placed side, with City's head coach satisfied with a point which extended his team's unbeaten run to 10 matches.

Skubala said: "It wasn't a nice game of football and we had to deal with it. In moments we dealt with it really well and in some parts we had the bigger chances.

"I think in the end we take the point but it shows how far this group has come because they're disappointed not to have won the game. They've come a long way and will keep going."

He added: "The ball was probably in the air more than on the floor but both backlines stood up well. There were a couple of penalty shouts but I've not seen them back.

"When we went to their place for my first game (losing 1-0 in November), I thought we got bullied a little bit, but I didn't see that at all today. We tried to use the width and play a little bit, but it didn't come off for us in stages where we could have been a little cleaner and a little better.

"We did tire a little towards the end but this week we'll regroup, refresh and go again."

Speaking about midfielder Conor McGrandles missing out, he said: "He'll have a scan in the middle of next week. His ankle has ballooned up and it could be something, but it could be nothing. We'll see where he's at."
