Lee Bullen was full of praise for Wednesday’s all-round team display after beating Barnsley to go top of the Championship.
The caretaker boss, who admitted he “had a little bit of a go at half time as I felt there was more in the locker” went on to say: “We ‘out-Barnsleyed’ Barnsley if you like with the high pressing game. The players were given a script and stuck to it to the letter.
“I’m delighted for all of them and by that I mean the whole group. We had a very good transfer window and that means we have a lot of depth and today we had seven or eight boys who didn’t make the squad.
“But their reaction has been top class and I think it shows the character and togetherness that we have in the dressing room.
“We’ve given everything today and we deserved to win the game.”
He added: “I thought we were terrific to a man all the way through the team. Cameron made a fantastic point-blank save right on half time and if that goes in we have a different game, so massive credit to him.”
Asked about the vacant manager’s position, Bullen said his focus would be on preparing the squad for next Saturday’s trip to Millwall and that the decision on who replaces Steve Bruce is for other people to make.
