FROM THE DUGOUT

Darrell Clarke: "We want to keep the momentum. 

"How many times has this club, or any club in League One, League Two, won five games on the spin, you'll probably see one in eight, nine years maybe. 

"We know it's very difficult to string wins together but that's what we'll be aiming to do.”

Graham Alexander: “It’s been a difficult little period for us the last couple of weeks and after the first couple of days analysing the game to see where we can improve, we want to put that into action and that’s what we’ve been trying to do this week. It’s only when you get to the games when you realise if you’ve made those improvements.
