New boss John Gregory couldn't have been happier with our win over Leyton Orient and the return of all three points in the match for the first time since he took over.
We won three two thanks to goals from Alexander, Drury and Adams, and we even had to come from behind in the game which was another source of pleasure for the gaffer given the spirit within the camp.
Speaking to the press following the game, the new man said.
'It was a great scalp. I don't think anyone gave us much chance of coming here to play the side who have been tearing up this division. They have had an amazing start to the season and are a difficult team to play against, but I've got nothing but praise for my boys in the way they stood up to them. We've come away with a fantastic win.'
Gregory goes on to say that he feels it's the best we've started a match so far in his short tenure, and he's definitely hoping that this will now be our foundation as we move forward in the rest of the season, but as for them taking the lead, he really did think it was against the run of play and unfair, so he was delighted to see us get back into the match in the manner that we did, especially as we then went on playing as well as we did and took all three points.
The resilience obviously against a side of their quality, having the one nil lead, to not letting our heads drop with have bouyed him perfectly for the run of fixtures coming up - especially as we have an extra 90 minutes in the Cup to contend with as well.
He even jokes that we could've made the game 5-1 really, so despite not being able to criticise them, he's still expecting more as we move forward, but the team will have to learn to expect that given this is the man who said that Gareth Barry needed to learn to get his shorts dirty during his time at Aston Villa, so at least for me, I'm really looking forward to covering some of his more outlandish comments as things go both for us and against us in future.
They might not be quite Colemanballs, but there's certainly room for a few more Gregoryisms.
