TWFC - How pleased are you to get your first league win at The Culverden?

RS - To get our first league win at The Culverden was massive and I’m extremely pleased we got it at our earliest opportunity. When I took the job I highlighted our home form must be improved during this journey and that aim remains a target. But to get our first home win on Saturday was massive for us all and the players and I’m certainly hoping there’s many more to come in the future.
