    Never mind pace(ish), that was a fair sprint, that!

    They were never, ever catching him.

    It was a controlled punt from Watt tbf. Could easily have hoofed it aimlessly.

    One step closer to staying up now, though we’re still only 9 points clear if Oldham win one of their 2 games in hand.

    Not safe yet, but we’re definitely a step closer. Good win.

    Was it Jones on commentary? Mentions the effort the Defence puts in and block after block. Anyway, a win away at top of league and a clean sheet to boot. Been a while coming.

    Great result. Scrappy game but that suited us after the deflected goal. These are supposedly the best team in the division yet we manage a result like that. Hopefully we can string a few more wins together. Good to see Walker get minutes. Pereira looked lively. Everyone played well. Bass did well with a lot of crosses late on.

    Not a chance of us going down. Points wise, we are almost nearer to playoffs than bottom 2.

    Sounds like a good defensive display today on the day Sheffield Wednesday are reportedly interested in Paudie

    Seen FGR twice this season and we were unlucky not to get all 6 points, they were defiantly fortunate at Valley Parade.

    So pleased for Hughes and the players. They deserved much more last week against Swindon, so good character to go to the leaders, keep a clean sheet and score twice.

    Brilliant, well done

    Interesting that we didn't get the fabled immediate new manager bounce, and we've actually had to improve week-on-week to get the win - that's actually a better omen, IMHO, as it shows Hughes' coaching is making a real difference.

    Instantly hitting form says nothing for the manager's tactics, and more about the players... but as we know, there was a huge amount of work to do with this lot, and looks like Hughes is getting it done.

    Early days, but I'm impressed with the last two performances.

    It was tongue in cheek. But…you did capture a good angle there. Just before that, his guts were hanging out of his shirt ;)
