Vital Quotes:

Paul Trollope: ‘This is a big week for us with three home games and we needed the win to get up the table because we don’t want to be in the bottom half. It was important we bounced back after three away games without much return,’

‘We were missing senior players but others came up to the plate and performed. Credit to them because some of them have not had much football recently.

‘We’d been disappointed with our defending at Boston but all our back four were solid and we didn’t allow Notts County many opportunities. The work ethic had been good in training in the week and we carried it through into the game, which was pleasing.’
