“We knew what we were up against. They caused us a few problems but we dealt with that.

“I thought the chances we created were really good, the goals we scored, the balls into the box, it was a really good showing for myself.

“Momentum is everything. Two wins on the bounce since we’ve been has been great and the place is really lively. The spirit is great and it’s a really good dressing room. They showed that togetherness.

Positive signs. (Ben Banks)

“We managed to get a foothold in the game and it’s great for the boys to get a clean sheet. We start with a  clean sheet and we build from that and try and score as many goals as possible.”
