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."

The Premier League: As Crazy As A Bag Of Snakes

haos reached its ultimate reckoning last weekend with Tony Hibbert looking assured at left back and Osman looking like a cultured ball playing midfielder before busting a gut to get to the back post for a Samuel Eto'o ball. Different chaos but chaos. If Kone scores the winner tonight I fear the world will end.
