”Today we put in a good performance, it was solid, it was comfortable, it was professional, it lacked more goals because we created enough to score three, four, five goals.

”But we got our clean sheet which is something we’ve been striving for, so it’s a good day all round and good for confidence in the dressing room.

”The home games have been frustrating so far for different reasons.

”Not that we’ve played terribly, it just hasn’t happened for us. Today was a nice one, you could have almost felt the frustration at half-time and not because we had a poor half or the ball hadn’t gone in the back of the net.

”We controlled every bit of the game and so now hopefully that gives everybody confidence.”
