Redfearn was particularly pleased with the defensive qualities of his players at the AESSEAL New York Stadium, and welcomed another much-needed three points.
“It’s a couple of wins and it’s a long old season. I didn’t get too down when it wasn’t so good and I don’t want to get carried away now,” Redfearn rold the club's official website.
“I know the nature of the Championship, it’s a tough division but the signs are good. When games have nothing in them like at Leeds last week, we look mentally tough as a group.
“I think the presence of some experience has helped and if you look at the back four, it was really experienced with Danny Collins at left back – and its helped it’s given us a platform.
“I know it’s a really boring thing to say, but I was more pleased with the clean sheet. Bristol City have had some good results recently, and to 'nil' them, is a good achievement.
“I’ve always been told that the harder you work, the luckier you get, and we deserve this clean sheet.”
