"The conditions got difficult.  The pitch is in good condition, but it played difficult because of the changing weather throughout the game.
Fleetwood were a constant threat on the counter attack with the pace they had.

"We had to be patient in our play and our work rate and desire to keep a clean sheet was excellent.

"It was really pleasing to win again, there's a long way to go in this season yet but it's always a good feeling to win at home.

"It's a long campaign, we're delighted with the position we're in and we'll keep working for it."
