Manager Graham Westley has said the players produced the perfect response to our league form in tonight's progression in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Stevenage had to come from behind after conceding the opening goal of the night after 25 minutes, but thanks to goals from Francois Zoko and Filipe Morais from the penalty spot secured us the win.
Speaking to Comet24 following the game, it wasn't just the win that clearly pleased the manager, it was the manner of the performance and the commitment of the players that was of most delight.
'It's been a long time coming hasn't it?'
Westley obviously references our run of results in the league, especially the last four losses on the bounce, and he describes it as a 'horrible run' and admitted that at points the team just haven't looked like they had a win in them, but something was different tonight, and it may just have been the greater experience in the team compared to some line ups he's put, but either way it equalled a result that will boost everyone at the club - the fans included.
We also had a few back from injury which will no doubt please the gaffer that they got minutes under their belt, and hopefully this can now be the turning point in the season.
'First and foremost you have got to have that work ethic, that togetherness and fighting spirit and it felt like the good old days didn't it for the first time since I've been back I think.'
A good boost definitely, a much needed win for confidence, and all the plusses that can be taken from players returning and standing up to be counted. Now we have to take that into the league and build on it and even if the next few results can't produce wins, at least get on an unbeaten run and pick up some points so it keeps coming together.
