a clean sheet - unbelievable!!!!!!
We had one 6 days ago against Portsmouth.
Anyway, another great result today especially against a team who’ve turned us over twice this season.
Well done lads, Gary and his team and all our supporters who travelled.
10th in the league as the new year begins, with 7 points in a week from 3 games with 2 away wins, 2 clean sheets, 12 points clear of the drop zone and only 4 points from the playoffs.
2 weeks to rest, recuperate, hopefully shake off some injury niggles and freshen up the squad a bit.
I’m loving this.

Wary of implying causation, but Jamal's upturn in form seems to have pretty nearly aligned with Kevin Miller coming in a GK coach.

Thought Caldwell got it spot on when bringing Sparkes on for Jevani after his injury. It looked like we changed to more of a 4-4-1-1, and then 4-4-2 when Stanno came on, and the extra wide player gave us more of a threat, especially with how Key can drive forward with the ball (despite his mistakes, I thought he played well second half). I think we might see more of this system going forward, although imagine Caldwell will be after a LB as I'm not convinced he fully trusts Sparkes yet.
