Sean O'Driscoll: Happy with his side's effort

Late goals from Jay Emmanuel-Thomas and Joe Bryan earned the Robins their first home league win since March 9 when they beat Middlesbrough in a Championship fixture.

But head coach O'Driscoll declined to label it a turning point and said: "Everyone was saying that when we won at Carlisle recently and we then turned in our worst display of the season against Oldham on Saturday.

"I'm pleased for the players and the supporters because they have been through a lot. We are trying to win over hearts and minds at the moment with what we are trying to do at the club and results like this certainly help.

"It wasn't the quality of our football that won us the game. But the players dug in and showed some character when Crawley tried to get some fluidity into their play.

"The victory gives us something to build on. I want to see us pass the ball better and there was a shortage of confidence at times but the attitude was right and that is very important."
