Assessing the first month of the season Stead said “We’re satisfied but we wanted more. We put an expectation on ourselves probably more so than the manager does,”
“We want to be competing at the top end. We’ve got a point against a very good Accrington side when I don’t think we’re anywhere near where we can be as a squad.
“We take the point and go again.
“We’re not a million miles away. If we can strengthen the squad then anyone would want that. You always want to be better.
“We’ve got a good group though with lads who are chomping at the bit and not playing. We’ve got good competition.
“That’s not something I’ve seen since I’ve been here. We’ve got a fantastic dressing room too.
“That side of it is the best I’ve seen here and it’s driven by the manager and the characters he signs.”
