Precious three points, but we still need to bring in quality players. The last two sides we've played are struggling themselves. We need to be scoring more goals, because we now have to play a decent side, Brighton, and I can see another backs-to-the-wall encounter and another humiliating defeat. Stephen, Puerto Santiago

Not a night for the purists but three points were vital to us. TR wasted some good chances but PD and PC were outstanding at the back. Also worst coffee in the football league? tj, Horbury

A team performance at last. Keep playing like that, with passion and belief then we will pull ourselves away from the wrong end of the table, well done! Kev, Lindley

Excellent defensive display. Dixon outstanding. This has really given us something to build on. Tom, Holmfirth

At last - some luck goes our way and achieving safety does not look impossible at the moment. If we could keep a clean sheet against Brighton this week could be season defining. James, Sheffield

Wonderful result, one we were not counting on, three more wins and a couple of draws and we are safe. Mark Robins starting to have an impact, made my day. Trojanhorse, Kirkburton

Good performance got a bit of luck but four pts from the last two games about right need to keep up this level of effort now. Geoff, Outlane

It was noticeable how we tried to close them down higher up the pitch, and I thought everyone put in 'a shift'. Dixon looks to be improving all the time. Simon, Ossett

A very organised professional performance. Well done Mark Robins. Theo may make mistakes but his pace/threat means opponents have to defend deep. Too many times this season we've let them have it easy. Andrew, Penistone

Solid showing improved as game wore on Robins, whipping the boys into shape onwards and upwards. Alan, Rastrick

Vaughany clinical finishing; Doesn't miss a chance like that! Stephen, Walton
