Bedeau joined United in January 2019 from Aston Villa and featured at the heart of the defence in the game on Saturday. He said: “It was nice to get the win, though I think we can play a lot better than what we did.

“It was obviously scrappy and quite windy on the day. We have just got to dig in and fight for the three points. I think we did that well at the weekend.”

Bedeau discussed other previous games, saying: “I think when we played Crawley (away the previous weekend) we were getting on the ball and having a lot of possession, but we didn’t quite get anything from the game so the boys were disappointed.

“This weekend the team were a lot happier even though we didn’t play as well, it’s just good to get the three points on the board.

“We’ve got another three-game week, and a busy October with a lot of Saturday and Tuesday fixtures. So it is just about building up the results and climbing up the table.”

Commenting on the game this Tuesday against Manchester City U21s in the EFL Trophy, he remembered last year’s match in the same competition.

The defender said: “I remember Kev (Van Veen) had a worldie goal, I think he scored two. But I passed him the one for the worldie, it’s my only assist so I keep going on about it!

“I think we did well against them last year so hopefully we can just do the same this year. They’re all going to be good players. If you’re at Man City, you’re going to be good on the ball. It will be a tough test but we're more than capable.”

Playing in this competition, Bedeau has found it a learning curve. He said: “They'll want to pass the ball more than most League Two teams do, so it is a different test but a good test too.

“I thought we played quite well against Lincoln (in the previous group stage game, drawing 1-1) in the first half especially. We lost out on the extra point on penalties. I think if we can get a win on Tuesday and get a little run in this competition like last year, it would be good.”

Reflecting on the season so far, he said: “It’s good to come back in and I played a lot in pre-season and now in the season. Hopefully, I can continue that.”

“I think the season so far has been good, I’ve got to play a lot of games which I’m really happy with. Hopefully, I can just keep trying to be the best player I can and keep getting in the team each week.”
