Eddie Howe was naturally delighted with the win at Gresty Road, being quoted on BBC Radio Solent as saying: "It's been a long road and the lads have won a lot of games to get to where we are and it hasn't been easy by any means. They deserve all the credit. Away from home it's easy to find ways to get beaten. Even in tight games, the best teams always find a way to win. Now we don't want to get caught. The challenge is to make sure nobody overtakes us".
