Adam Fisher could only see the positives after Welwyn Garden City’s 2-0 defeat at Peterborough Sports.

It was City’s second ever game in the Southern League and their first away from their Herns Lane base.

And although they went down to two second-half goals, manager Fisher was still looking on the bright side after the game.

He said: “I thought we were the better side for the first 15 minutes but I just think we were a little bit naive.

“Second half they were a bit fitter and a bit more physical and stronger and we struggled to get to grips with them.

“We didn’t make the right decisions in the right places at the right time and I think in the end it was probably a fair result.

“But I’ve said to the lads it’s a good thing to happen at this stage of the season because in two games they’ve seen what this league is about.

“If I’m being honest a couple of them got found out but that’s a positive because we can work with them and I’m still learning too so there are still things I can do better and change.

“And as a group we’ll improve.

“They’re a good side and I think they’ll be up there challenging but Didcot were a good side and we did everything right on Saturday.

“I think we could have got a point out of the game but two games in and three points, I would have taken that.”
