"When people see us play like that they are amazed that we are in the bottom half of the table.
"The amazing thing is that we started the match with six regular first team players unavailable and we lost two more to injuries at half-time. Our experienced players were superb and the reserves that came in did a tremendous job and have made serious claims for regular places."

He added: "We've often played well for 45 minutes but not maintained our level for the full 90 minutes, but on the occasions that we have, such as against Newmarket and Great Yarmouth we've picked up convincing wins."
Stuart Anderson scored with a near-post header onto the bottom corner after James Richardson's free-kick to put March 1-0 after 30 minutes.
United went 3-0 up within 10 minutes of the start of the second half.
Ash Brand scored a wonder goal, running from within his own half and beating two defenders before slotting home before a sublime passing move, started from the left-back position involving Richardson, Lee White and Brand finished with skipper Luke Pepper scoring from a one-on-one position.
The hosts then took their foot off the gas and Stowmarket were given a ray of hope when a penalty was awarded for a handball after a corner, but Chris Anker pulled off a spectacular save to his left.
This sparked the Hares back into life.
After a quick break Lee White side-footed home from six yards after Pepper's cross from the right wing and Andy Wayte completed the scoring after collecting a Pepper pass.
