'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hill - Superb Performance & Great Response

Having lost our last two games, manager Keith Hill has said he was delighted with how the players responded in the two one victory over Bristol Rovers on Easter Monday.

Drawing a line under those defeats and the talk of pressure and having to relax, the lads went out there and despite taking a knock early on as Rovers took the lead, we bounced back with goals from Bunney and Lund to take all three points and the victory, and by rights the margin could've been larger with the other chances we had.

Speaking to the Official Site following the victory, the manager explained.

'I trust these lads and they're amazing. We had to remind each other of just how good we are and Dan Fradley put a compilation together of the season successes so far. We played it on the coach and wow, it made me feel 10 foot tall, as well as the players.'

Hill goes on to say that ahead of the game it was the perfect reminder for the team to just be themselves and play their game and believe in what they are capable of doing, so for the gaffer to see a performance like that following it, you wonder if it will now become a regular pre match ritual.

'I think we performed superbly. It was passes, possession, penetration and product - it was typical of what we have been accustomed to. It was an emotional day for a lot of reasons. I was encouraged to take Peter Vincenti off because he lost consciousness and I couldn't have that on my conscience - Peter is much more important than a game of football. Then Joe Bunney, who has had a bereavement in the family, comes on, and you could see the emotions when he scored. He has been absolutely outstanding and it was a great finish.'

Hill goes on to say that he feels that everybody out on that pitch deserved a performance like that and a result like that, because he feels things have gone harshly against us in recent matches, and he feels we really did bounce back with some style and hopefully it should be the lift we need between now and the end of the campaign, and even if we can't get that top spot back, we can secure automatic promotion which is still a huge success this quickly for us as a club in his eyes.
