“In both games that we played, I think that they have been outstanding and I think they will go up.

“We have taken four points off them, but the games have been really tight and perhaps we could have won today.

“We also could have lost the game but for some good saves from [Lee] Burge and some interventions.”

“Maybe we can pass out from the back a bit more often and have that confirmef.

“But, what happened in the game is that we were allowing them to dictate in the first instance which led to the first goal.

“I thought that we were calm, and grew into the game.

“As soon as we got on the front foot, in terms of mentality, we scored – and I thought that it was a really good goal,” speaking on Jordy Hiwula’s equaliser.

“They haven’t conceded many goals at home this season, especially in open play. So to get two from open play and go close at the end with two headers was great.

“We’re coming to the stage of the season now, with six games left, that we really wanted to come and get the three points here which not many teams have achieved in a long time.

“We have to get closer to that level of performance and be consistent with it, but it does show you that we can do it and get up there.

“There were some brilliant performances again today.”
