“It was a win and that's what counts at the moment. It wasn't the greatest performance, especially after the victory on Tuesday but the main thing is, in these circumstances that we get three points and get ourselves up the table.
“Unfortunately there was an element in the crowd today that did their best to stop this team from winning and I can't believe that it is still an issue. I can honestly say that I have never, and will never hear a reaction like that, especially when the team has just equalised! The thing, it doesn't bother me – what bothers me is that it affects the players and as soon as people realise that the better. You could actually see the players get nervous as soon as the chanting started and I can't have that.”
“I don't know what to say about their goal. I can't have a go at Bart, more often than not he saves us, but unfortunately mistakes happen and today he's had another bad one at the start of the game. But at the end of the day it's a team game and the team got themselves back into the game. Sam took his goal very well as did Eric, they were both great striker's goals and they've done extremely well.
“I just hope now that we can build on this run of two wins and two and add to it on Tuesday at Notts County. As we've seen today, the league has now become a lot closer and so a win or two will see us climb the table.”
