Biggest win of season - Sinton

"I've got to give the players a lot of credit as they delivered everything I asked for.

"I made a couple of changes and people stepped up to the plate - that's what we wanted.

"It was a little bit edgy at times but, considering where we are in the league, we're going to be. But that's as good as we've been for a long time and the crowd were magnificent."
