Jon Brady has been speaking after it was confirmed he would continue in caretaker charge until the end of the season.
“I’m delighted to have been given the opportunity to try and make a difference,” he said.
“We know what we need to do and we have 66 days and 14 games to keep the club in League 1.
“We’ve got nine teams in the top 11 to play, three in the middle and two teams in and around us. The challenge is going to be tough but we are going to roll our sleeves up and give it absolutely everything.
“The boys were excellent on Tuesday night against Plymouth but that can’t be a one off, it has to be a starting point. We have got to be consistent in our actions and delivery.
“The players showed great character and resilience after Swindon and I’m sure that will help their confidence and belief. I hope the fans enjoyed it as well it’s just a shame we couldn’t share the occasion with them.
“I feel everyone is behind us and we’ve have been overwhelmed with all the well wishers. We miss the fans terribly and I’m sure they are missing coming to games with their family and friends. Potentially now we are seeing an end point and hopefully we can all come back together for the start of next season and we are all striving hard to make sure that is in League 1 which is where this club needs to be.”
