“There’s more to it than the win. We had three players injured last week. We had to adjust the tactics and put things in place. I’m so proud of how the players applied themselves.”

“We deserved the goal. I thought the foul should have been a red card but fortunately the free-kick went in.”

“Myself, Dobbo and Andy had a wry smile at the end. We put a plan in place and it’s come off. But that’s 5% of it. 95% is the players putting in such a fantastic effort.”

"I am really proud of the application that the boys put in. People will say we have defended well and we did defend well but don't discount the way the forwards defended and the way they set up. Myself, Dobbo [Richard Dobson] and Andy [Fairman] came up with a plan but the players have to keep to that plan and they take all the credit. They were dropping when they needed to drop and press when they needed. We defended so well as a unit. I knew Peterborough would break well on the counter but we were sharp and broke play up.

"Ryan Allsop made a couple of great saves but so did Aaron Chapman for Peterborough. All-in-all, I think we deserved the win."

"It is important that the squad is strong. Those who are sat on the bench will definitely get a chance. I thought Alex Samuel led the line really well. One game doesn't make a season but it is a good message when we do that against a side like Peterborough."
