A clean sheet against promotion-chasing Wrexham AFC was the highlight for Robbie Herrera as he reflected on a 0-0 draw at Plainmoor.

The Gulls were unable to break the deadlock as both sides struggled to create many clear cut chances.

“I thought we had the better of the first half, without really threatening too much,” said Herrera. “They did the same in the second, so a point is a point. There was a lot of stuff in between, not a great deal for the keepers to do, but a clean sheet for us is massive at the moment.”

There was a welcomed return for club captain Josh Gowling, who was making his first appearance since the opening day of the season. Herrera was delighted with the impact he had on his return. “He’s experienced. He’s a leader. He talks well, martialled the back four really well. I wouldn’t say he’s 100% fit. He’s trained for the last ten days and joined in with everything. That was his first game since the Tranmere game, he’s been fantastic today for us.”

As the Gulls continue the search for their first victory of the season, Herrera was keen for the squad to build upon that clean sheet and improved performance.

“I’ve just said to the lads there that they have to take heart and belief from that performance. We still feel that we’ve got a lot more to give. We’re still going to have a few injuries coming back so at the moment it’s shaping up quite well.”
