Neil Aspin said he was pleased with his side’s first clean sheet of the season - and said he hoped for more of the same in the coming weeks.

Town ran out comfortable 2-0 winners against Hinckley United on Saturday, a result which saw the Leicestershire side slump to the bottom of the league.

Apart from an early flurry in the first five minutes, the Shaymen were never troubled by Hinckley and earned their first clean sheet of the season.

Aspin said although the performance wasn’t as good as against Chester, a game the Shaymen lost, he was happy with the result.

“We didn’t play as well as we did at Chester but the result is more pleasing and a clean sheet is definitely what was needed,” he said.

“It was a competant performance and certainly capable enough to win the match.”

“It wasn’t as good on the eye as Wednesday and it didn’t flow as well. It was warmer, it’s a different kind of pitch and afternoon games are often different to evening matches.

“I was a lot happier with the way we played on Wednesday but I would rather have today’s result,” he said.

“The clean sheet is very important. I think the result was vital today. You take a point in some games, like the point at Bradford which was a difficult game especially with ten men, but today I thought we needed to get the three points and if we hadn’t I would have been very disappointed.”
