Brewers have turned corner - Rowett

"That might just be the win that gets us enough points to minimum get us into the play-offs.

"Tonight was almost the pivotal moment of our season. Had we lost again, we could have seen our season just slip away a little bit.

"I've been warmed by the whole performance. It was a magnificent performance in light of the fact we could have been very, very nervy. And who would have forgiven us after the absolute drubbing we took at Port Vale?"
