“The game is in your head,”

Alexander insisted

. “When you’re on a difficult run for a long time, it’s hard to get yourself out of that hole.

“We challenged the boys at half-time to turn everything on its head, and we had to do that.

“Coming here, not playing as well as we could have and getting beat would have been a big blow to us.

“I’m so pleased for the players because I’ve seen the work they’ve done over the last three weeks – they deserved a reward at the end of it.

“We got that tonight, and it has to be a catalyst now – it has to mean more than just three points, it has to be the start of something better.”
