"Bring your friends, bring your cousins, bring a guinea pig, I don't care, just make sure everybody is getting around the boys" - Cheltenham Town boss Darrell Clarke after Burton Albion win

You had to deliver tonight and you did

Yes, the boys were magnificent in the second half. We have got ourselves back in the game with a great finish from Tayls (Matty Taylor). Scoring a goal from a set piece then, from the old b****r Curtis Davies, it was great.

What did you say at half-time?

We knew it was going to be a fight, a scrap and when you look at the pitch, we knew what sort of game it was going to be. Both teams fighting for their lives and we gave a goal away from a set piece. We worked on all set pieces before the game to make sure we were right. That was disappointing. But I was looking for a response and for me, it epitomises the character of the group, since I have come in. We keep going. We've had a really tough time of things over the last five or six weeks. We've had players ruled out for the season: Petty (Tom Pett), Keeno (Aidan Keena), Streety (Rob Street), everything has been stacked against us, a combination of things not going quite right. It's nice to get Tayls back on the pitch and back on the scoresheet. I thought Joe Nuttall did very well, leading the line with Tayls well.

And Matty Taylor does what he does best, with five goals in eight starts for the club

He's done it all his career. I can't speak highly enough of the lad. He scored 60-plus goals for me at Bristol Rovers and his game has never changed. He sniffs things out, unsettles centre-halves, it's great to have him back.

Is he defying all medical logic by returning so early from his hamstring and playing for as long as he did this evening?

Even before he was injured, you could see, when he came in, he gets opportunities to score goals. If you look at the window and the transfer business in League One for strikers, I wouldn't imagine there are many who have scored five goals and Tayls has missed the last six weeks. I knew what I was bringing into the building. We have to try and look after him, keep him fit, nurse him through it and try and get him through three games next week.

And then Curtis Davies scores his first for the club. Have you give him any stick for not scoring before now?

I give my centre-halves a lot of stick for not scoring enough goals this season, but the big fella has come up trumps tonight and testament to the character of the guy. I've got loads of time for Curtis Davies, he is a proper guy.

Great scenes after the final whistle with the fans lifted

Yes, fans lifted, they were brilliant tonight - absolutely magnificent, but we need them Saturday (v Lincoln City at home), we need them Tuesday. We haven't put decent performances in at home recently, but we are going to need every single one of them. Bring your friends, bring your cousins, bring a guinea pig, I don't care, just make sure everybody is getting around the boys and we'll try to put in a performance they can be proud of.

You are still in the fight and it's still in your hands with a week left of the season. How big an achievement is that, even with plenty of work still to do?

Not an achievement for me, nowhere near an achievement. I came in and I was consistent with my message. I've given every minute of my life to try and keep this team in League One and the squad of players deserve support for these last three games and we'll give it the best possible go that we can.
