“It was a performance that was full of character and grit,” Ardley told the club’s official website. “We knew the lads would finish the game strongly as their fitness levels are so good.

“I just felt with our energy that if we kept on driving forward we could go on and achieve what we wanted to achieve.

“There is a great spirit around the place. Since Christmas the bond between the first-team, our club, and the fans has been immense. There is a real connection there at the moment and the best in my time. Can we finish the job?”
