More than 4,000 fans flocked to the Globe Arena to see the home side come back from a goal behind to pick up a vital three points in League Two on Tuesday.

Bentley said: "It was fantastic to see so many fans here and the lads certainly responded to it.

"We started off badly by going a goal down early in the game and things went a bit flat but, to be fair to the lads, they came back fighting and played some great stuff on a difficult pitch.

"There were some great performances and I am delighted Andy Parrish won us the game with his first goal for us which capped everything off.

"We were a bit nervy towards the end of the game but the crowd stayed with us and I am sure they went home happy. Hopefully some of them will come back again and support the club in the next few weeks because it makes a massive difference to a club like ours."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
