Lee Bell says he was especially pleased for Crewe Alexandra supporters, after watching his side record their third away win of the season.
The Manager was delighted with the result and performance, which was capped by goals from Courtney Baker-Richardson and Connor O’Riordan.
But it was the strong Alex following amid the 5,993 crowd that was foremost in Bell’s thoughts after the final whistle.
He said: “I’m delighted for the fans, because the last time we came here it was a horrible day because it cemented our relegation last season.
“A lot of the players from that day are still here, so I’m pleased for them, and mainly for the fans. They travel in their numbers and we have to make sure they go away happy, and we’ve done that."
He added: "I told the players I expected them to win the game after the work we did on it in the week.
“I thought the first half was as good as we’ve been this season; we put them on the back foot and we pressed high. That was the plan, to make it exciting and try to dominate them, and I thought the players were excellent.
“We scored some really good goals. I thought it was a really good team performance.
“Now we have to go through all the work again in a short space of time, go through this game, and then put a plan together for Barrow on Friday.”
