“It wasn’t great from us. The goal in the first half came at a perfect time. The crowd was getting restless, the players were getting restless and we were getting restless on the side.
“But it takes a bit of character to turn things around when things aren’t going great. I was delighted when Fraser Franks scored a goal [to make it 1-0] and it gave us a lift.
“It did for the second half and we went on and saw the game out.”
