Moore said he was delighted with the efforts of his keeper, and for his side to claim the points at Stadium MK.
“They had a couple of long range efforts, and it was great to see David Stockdale pull off the saves,” he said. “He pulled off a finger tip save for the one-on-one. The other two were from long distance and his positional sense was good.”
“I was pleased to get the three points,” he continued. “It is not an easy place to come and get it but I thought we set our stall our very early and managed to maintain it.
“The goal came from the penalty spot; it was a penalty. It was good to see Josh step up and put it away.
“In the second half, we dropped back and allowed them a little bit of possession and territory. I said to the boys ‘when you do that, it invites pressure on.’”
