Goalkeeper Chris Day and striker Jordan Burrow have both reacted to the two one win over Brentford.
Speaking to the Official Site our goalkeeper focused on the fact that everybody in the camp had been delighted to see us pick up a home win in the league, because it has been a long time coming this season, so it was nice to finally send the fans home with something to really smile about.
Admittedly he says that it's always nice to win at home, but when it is your first of the season in the league is does feel more vital and more special.
'It's always nice to win a local derby too, so that's particularly sweet.'
Day says that Westley had been pushing the players hard in training when it came to defensive tactics and solidarity, so to see that come off in the game - even though a clean sheet would've been preferable - has given everybody a boost.
Even following the midweek win against MK Dons, he admits the gaffer had the players back in the next day preparing for the Brentford game, and clearly the efforts on the training pitch came to fruition.
Striker Jordan Burrow held his interview with the Comet24, and admitted that although he was disappointed not to score in the game himself, he was pleased with how he seems to be developing an understanding with two goal hero on the night, Francois Zoko.
It was his first appearance since injuring his ankle in the game against Carlisle last month, and whilst everybody in the camp was pleased to see us pick up our first home win - especially as it built on the win against MK Dons - of particular pleasure for him, was the partnership he seems to be building with our striker.
'It was another 2-1 win and personally I was pleased with my performance. I thought me and Zoko complimented each other quite well. He's come in and been brilliant and he's scored three in two. He's given the squad a big lift.'
Burrow adds that the plan was for him to get near an hour under his belt as he hasn't really training that much, but Westley asked him to give all he had during his spell on the pitch and he felt he did that.
He also pointed to the fact that one of the problems the squad has had this season has been in finishing off the chances we created, and Zoko's sharpness is very telling on that score.
Again, there is a fair bit of hope moving forward now, especially if Zoko can maintain his current form and other players can chip in and help on the goalscoring front.
