The match was played at a high tempo meaning it was contested more in the spirit of a competitive fixture than a friendly.
Page said that was something he was happy about because it replicated the type of test his players will face in Sky Bet League One this season.
He told Valiant PlayerHD: “There were a lot of positives to come out of it tonight, I thought it was a physical battle as well.
“The way they played is very similar to the teams we’re going to come up against in League One in the future so we used it as an exercise tonight and I thought we coped with it really well.”
