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."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
