Manager Wayne Burnett has said he was delighted to take the win against Bristol Rovers and avoid a repeat of the Exeter game.

A brace from on loan Azeez brought us back from a goal behind in the game, and we went on to secure all three points and the gaffer couldn’t have been more delighted with the win.

Speaking to London24 following the game the gaffer said he was amazed when the referee showed five minutes of injury time at the game as with how the match had gone it was eerily reminiscent of the match against Exeter where they came back for a point and he feared that was going to happen again.

‘I was praying that they didn’t score because sitting on this line I can feel my heart pumping and it’s not good for my health. But I’ll be really pleased when we get to the 85th minute and we are two or three up at some point. I still won’t relax until the final whistle though.’

Burnett adds that he’d told the team he was making changes for this match ahead of the Exeter game so it wasn’t a reflection on anybody, he knew he’d have to freshen things up and he feels the team worked very hard on the night to get the result and he feels we more than deserved it.

For the boss whilst he wouldn’t be drawn on any play off hopes following the game though, he did point to the fact that starting the season many had us tipped for relegation so he’s utterly delighted with how the season has gone for us, even allowing for the hiccups and disappointments.
