“Our belief has never dwindled and, in the previous five games, we’ve been pretty good. We’ve had 50 attempts at goal, but only scored once and we just needed to be more clinical.
“In this game, we have scored two goals from opportunities that were harder than all those chances we haven’t been taking and Freddie’s showed real bravery and ability. When he hit it, I thought that’s got a chance and I’ve never seen my assistant (Richie Barker) so happy.
“He was never that happy when he scored himself so, for him to behave like that, tells you what a good goal it was. I’ve been told we’ve never done the double over Sheffield Wednesday, so it’s a night we’ll always remember being a part of and it’s given us a real feelgood factor.
“We’re building a positive feeling now because we’ve got six first-teamers coming back by the end of the month so, hopefully, we can give it a good go in the last few weeks of the season.”
