He said: "It was a fantastic performance and I'm proud of all the lads.

"We have a small squad with a load of injuries at the moment and every single one of my players was a hero.

"I always try and stay level-headed but it's probably the best I've ever felt as a boss and I am delighted for the team and the fans who helped make this such a great atmosphere."

Talking about Williams' winner, Bentley said: "We all know what Ryan is capable of and we see it every day in training.

"He went close with a couple of free-kicks earlier but he hit the mark just when it mattered with a goal of pure quality. He will take the headlines understandably but it was almost the perfect team performance."
