The manager said: “I requested it in the first leg at Fleetwood.

“I said this is new to us: there are no crowds, can we be our own fans.

“Each player on the pitch and all you subs, and I even extended to the directors and the lucky ones who came today.

“I think it was quite evident in the three games you can make a difference.

“When there’s nobody in there, it went in our favour because my boys were willing to shout and sing and they didn’t care what they looked like.

“That’s what we are, we don’t care if that’s it takes to get the job done.

“The subs like David Stockdale were leading.

“Josh Parker, who hasn’t featured in any of the play-offs, but he has because he’s been so vocal in getting all the boys singing, chanting, clapping and cheering every tackle and every header.

“This was a ploy we wanted to use and I’m hoping it inspired the ones on the pitch to work that little bit harder because boy they did that tonight.”
