Manager Brian Laws has praised his players work ethics after comfortably dumping second division high-flyers Brentford out of the FA Cup this afternoon.
“The players were fantastic, absolutely awesome”, Laws told BBC Radio
“The tempo, the pace, they never let the tie drop. We caused them problems and could have been 3-0 up, which would have really killed the game.
“However credit to them they got themselves back in the game and made it very difficult for us.
“I thought we deserved the victory, we were the better side on the day, it was a fantastic performance from everyone of the players.
“We’ve had two defeats but spirits are still as high as they ever were and as long as we keep playing like that they will remain that way.
“I thought Jamie McCombe came close to winning Man-of-the-Match because he had an excellent game.
“It is important for the club to be in round three, I’m delighted for the Chairman because he has been excellent since taking over and we all hope we get a big club in the next round.
“The result sets up the derby match with Hull next week nicely and supporters’ would be mad to miss it the way we are playing.”
