on an emphatic win…
The work ethic was good and the concentration to continue doing what we are trying to work at all the time was pleasing. I thought there were some really good bits of play out there and some really good football.

on pleasing aspects of the performance
We are starting to see what we are looking for - with rotation in some of the play, the concentration when we are keeping the ball and not being impatient. I think we’re starting to see that now.

on a good evening to play football…
The pitch suited us. It was a nice crowd at Hastings, a good crowd, and that is what football is all about. You come to these places and it’s good see a big crowd turn up with a lot of young faces.
