Moore full of praise for players and fans

Darren Moore saluted his players and the fans after tonight’s 2-1 win over MK Dons lifted us into the division one play-off places.

Moore said following the late victory that stretches our unbeaten league run to nine games: “Credit to the fans. Even when we went one nil down, I sensed an energy from the crowd that they could see the team was trying all the time.

“We spoke at half-time about digging deep to pull the result out of the bag.

“For me, as a manager to get the three points and keep that mentality and momentum going was really important because that is something we are trying to install at this football club.”

He added: “It is great that we are in the top six but it is only a start. We are 19 games in.

“We are not even at the halfway mark of the season. There is plenty of football ahead of us. There is a busy Christmas period to navigate through but we are making the right steps forward and we need to continue to get better.”

And speaking about Josh Windass, who came on as a second-half sub after his lengthy spell injured on the sidelines and ended up with an assist and scoring the winner, Moore said: “I am delighted for him and his contribution was second to none.

“He caused them problems in the areas that he picked up. Tonight will have done him a world of good and he will have blown off a bit of the rustiness. I thought he was excellent.”
