Ling's team recovered from the heavy 4-1 home defeat to Southend last week to collect only their second League Two away win of the season with Danny Stevens and Joe Oastler getting the decisive goals.

"I thought it was a good solid performance and I thought we stuck at it. If I'm honest I don't think we played particularly well in the first half but we retained possession and played better in the second half," he said.

"We went a little more offensive today and it certainly paid off. It helps with the early goal, Danny (Stevens) got ten last year and it's been stop-start for him because he's been injured. Hopefully that's a start of a run for Danny and he's thoroughly deserved his goal today.

"They had a few chances but didn't really test Pokey (Michael Poke). It was a good team performance and it's good for the defence to come away with a clean sheet.

"After bad results, the players have always responded and they did once again today. We can't get above ourselves, we know where we are in the league, we're a hard working team and that was our first home defeat.

"To come back like that today and keep ourselves looking up rather than down was brilliant and we're now three points away from the play-offs."

f I were Manuel Pellegrini I would keep quiet and hope the Board didn't notice City not winning anything. If he isn't sacked I'd be astonished.
