Speaking after watching his side grind out a 2-1 victory, the Town boss said: "It was a very important win in terms of trying to give ourselves a chance of staying in touch with the top two.
"We've fallen behind them both in terms of games and points, so I was delighted to get the victory
"That was the sort of win, from reading reports, that Forest Green and Cheltenham have managed to get and been praised for.
"Without it being pretty, we managed to get the job done and that's what it was all about last night – the three points.
"It was a great display of character from us to come back from that goal down and take the win."
